Fear and Fantasy (Masks Required)

Three wishes sold at a Cairo kiosk force their buyers to face their personal struggles; disaffected video game inventors watch their invention warp fantasy into reality; and a young, queer artist tries to reconcile his childhood memories with his deepest desires and fears while navigating Beirut’s vibrant underground scene. Deena Mohamed (Shubeik Lubeik), Joseph Kai (Restless), and K Wroten (Eden II) discuss how surrealism and otherworldliness can help us navigate uncomfortable subjects. Moderated by Joan Zahra Dark, Cartoonist Cooperative.

Masks will be required upon entry to attend this program.
