SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH PROGRAM LINEUP

"The Environmental Agency-Abu Dhabi and Zayed University's Al Sidr Environmental Film Festival in February 2020 in Abu Dhabi, UAE focused on Waste. To my chagrin as artistic director, I did not focus on one element that is wasted. Time. On the one hand, Time is an elusive invisible mythical character that mesmerizes artists; on the other, it is the most scientifically calibrated, ubiquitous concept confronting and confounding scientists. The three films we curate frame time to challenge and bend political perspectives of our quantum selves and constructed collectives—to move beyond an ethos of outrage at the horrors of fires and floods. Immediate, spectacular, live, and broadcasted, we live perhaps in instant quick time environmentalism. However, the time of environmental violence is also slow, anachronistic, ancient, and non-human. This invisible irony of time is what our cinema artists represent. Our paradoxical age needs migrations in time too. " Artistic Director, Al Sidr Environmental Film Festival, Nezar Andary
