The exhibition-installation at Cinema La Compagnia inspired by the animation film that tells the personal story of the Iraqi-French reporter Feurat Alani in the visual storytelling by Leonard Cohen

Cinema La Compagnia (Via Cavour 50/R)

2 / 7 April – free entrance

The flavor of apricot ice cream, the smell of gunpowder, the sound of bombings—the Iraqi-French filmmaker Feurat Alani appeals to the senses in his portrayal of Iraq through memories of family visits. As an adult he spends a number of years there working as a journalist, and is confronted by terror and war. In 20 animated shorts directed by Leonard Cohen, through minor events Alani’s personal history emerges, as well as that of his family and a blighted country.

At the Cinema La Compagnia a multimedia installation of videos and images allows the public to immerse themselves in the personal experience of Flavours of Iraq.
