Fashion Loves Film:
Arab fashion past & present
+ panel discussion
Tue 9 Apr, 6.30pm, ICA
Book now: tickets on sale at ica.org.uk.
Festival favourite Fashion Loves Film returns with a special edition exploring trends across the Arab region at a time of exciting new changes.
The programme features acclaimed Cannes Award-winning documentary DoBuy: The Fabric of Faith, which follows three Emirati women as they attempt to launch a forward-thinking fashion range in the heart of the Gulf.
Alongside will be cutting-edge shorts from art-film to stop-motion satire, including How Can I Resist You, a love letter to London's Gulf fashion scene; and viral video Niquabitch, an electric response to France's 2010 ban on wearing the burka.
Followed by an exclusive panel discussion with Kathryn Ferguson (filmmaker and Fashion Loves Film curator), Reina Lewis (Professor of Cultural Studies, University of the Arts London), Emily Harris (director, DoBuy) and Sophia Al-Maria (Artist, writer and cinematographer of How Can I Resist You).
