Tyneside Cinema Projections presents Alia Syed: Routes Through
Fri 25 Oct 20.30 £6/£4
Venue: Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle upon Tyne

Filmmaker Alia Syed presents a programme of her work at Tyneside Cinema. Routes Through is a collection of Syed’s moving image work, from the early Fatima’s Letter (1992), a formally beautiful, elliptical work on 16mm whose subtitles play with and tease its English-speaking audience; to On a Wing and a Prayer (2016), inspired by the story of Abdul Rahman Haroun, who walked through the Channel Tunnel on 17 August 2015 and was subsequently held on remand for five months at Elmley Prison. Syed will also preview an excerpt from her new film Snow.

Routes Through is presented in partnership between Tyneside Cinema and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
