BLIND AMBITION BY HASSAN KHAN
Fragmenta is pleased to announce a film screening of artist Hassan Khan’s Blind Ambition. The screening will take place at The Royal British Legion in Valletta, and will be followed by a Q&A with Hassan Khan himself. The event is free of charge and open to the general public.
Blind Ambition (2012) is a 46-minute long film shot with a cell phone, with 27 actors in nine different episodes that take place at different times of the day in public places across the city. Shot in stark black and white and completely silent, except for the voices of the actors, it is an attempt to crystallise and suspend an emotional condition that seethes under the surface of a collective, to produce a portrait of selves held together by a fragile intent.
