About the Event
A film by Ariella Aïsha Azoulay followed by a conversation between Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, Sherena Razek, and Adel Ben Bella.
Directed by filmmaker and anticolonial scholar Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, The World Like a Jewel in the Hand is an experimental documentary that travels over open books, looted objects and postcards to look for the imperial foundations of the world in which we live. Within this wide landscape, the film focuses on the destruction of the Jewish Muslim world that existed in North Africa, making it imaginable and inhabitable again. Narrated in the first person, by an Algerian Jew and a Palestinian Jew, the film refuses the imperial histories of those places.
