Drawing upon work from native and diaspora filmmakers and artists from West and Southeast Asia, Monsoon, Prayers New Routes is a compilation of films and videos that document the Islamic communities dispersed around the Indian Ocean and beyond. Many of the featured filmmakers and artists reside in trans-oceanic port-cities, and their practice touches upon concepts that reverberate across diaspora and migration, urban culture and religious struggle, and new approaches to image and sound in the age of globalization.
Filmmakers Monira Al Qadiri and Aryo Danusiri will be present for a post-screening discussion.
