The Third World Ecology Trilogy

Share this page:
The Third World Ecology Trilogy cinematic performance includes still and moving images arranged in three works: Palestinian Wildlife Series; The Pan African Asian Women’s Organization Cairo to Conakry, 1960-1965and Sinai, to reflect on third world feminism, ecology and postcolonial thought in a unique and embodied cinematic performance experience.

The Palestinian Wildlife Series: The first in a trilogy of expanded cinema performances on colonialism, third world feminism and ecology, Palestinian Wildlife Series appropriates footage from a nature program on African Wildlife – shot from a television set in Palestine – to reflect on parallel issues of mediation, displacement and extinction in relation to its subjects.

The Pan African-Asian Women’s Organization, Cairo and Conakry 1960-1965: Within the context of early independence movements in Africa, Gammaya’at el Ma’ra Africaya Assiawaya, the Pan-African-Asian Women’s Organization, was co-founded by Khalil’s maternal grandmother and her Guinean partner in 1960, with headquarters in Cairo, Egypt and Conakry, Guinea. Using images from family archives, this performance chronicles a unique moment of third world feminism, African socialism, African independence and dreams of African Asian unity.

Exploring this North and Sub-Saharan African alliance, the project investigates the intertwined political and personal histories of a group who’s existence has been widely obscured. Impossible to conduct as a straightforward historical research, this artistic research chronicles the irretrievability of certain memories and events.

Sinai: The third in a trilogy of expanded cinema performances on colonialism, third world feminism and ecology, including Palestinian Wildlife Series and The Pan African Asian Women’s Organization, Cairo and Conakry, 1960-1965, SINAI reflects on the loss of rare marine life in the Egyptian Sinai. Meditating on the sensual and subtle movements of water and sea plants, this short essay film reflects on life in a twin dimension of earth.
