Nour Ouayda, Towards the Sun (still), 2019.

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Nour Ouayda's Towards the Sun (2019), presented as part of our special feature of Images Festival 2021, and among the six films picked by the festival programmers for e-flux audiences. 

You are now in the main hall of the National Museum in Beirut. A guard reminds you that you are encouraged to touch the archeological objects. A voice in your headset suggests that you lick the stone. You are now facing a hole in the wall on the lower left corner of a mosaic. The voice in your headset indicates that it was made by a sniper. Out of curiosity, you dial 1-9-9-1 to listen to the rest of the story.

Nour Ouayda is a filmmaker, film critic, and programmer. She is a co-editor of the Montreal-based online film journal Hors champ. She is deputy director at Metropolis Cinema Association in Beirut where she also coordinates the Cinematheque Beirut project. Her films and writing research the practice of drifting in cinema. She is part of the Camelia Committee, a collective that explores hybrid forms of writing for and in cinema.
