”It was out of a string of coincidences and the free time that our recessing country, Greece, abundantly offered to us that we found ourselves in Cairo in 2012. In a way, we immediately felt at home. Demonstrations, tear gas, traffic jams. We didn’t know much about The Invisible Hands-project and there was no idea for a film. We knew Alan through music. So did his all-Egyptian band. We all met him separately at two different stops of his last tour: Athens and Cairo. We soon realized that we are witnessing a music experiment, actually the most ambitious that this unconventional musician/ethnomusicologist has ever been involved in: to produce his most accessible album to date in a language he doesn’t speak, Arabic.”

Välkommen till ett samtal mellan konstnären och filmaren Marina Gioti och filmaren Georges Salameh kring arbetet med filmen The Invisible Hands där trådar från berättelser om musik, politik, inspiration och osäkerhet vävs ihop.

The Invisible Hands visas kl 17.30 med en 15 minuters paus före samtalet.
