“History of Histories, Afghan Films, 1960-Present,” presented by artist Mariam Ghani

Please join us this Wednesday, March 19th at 6:30pm in the Library Auditorium when artist Mariam Ghani will screen History of Histories. For this powerful film event, Ghani compiled a rare selection of fiction films, newsreels, and documentaries from Afghanistan’s national film archive, spanning from the 1960s to the present, that together show the transformation of the country over the past four decades. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artist, lead by History professor Jo-Ann Gross.

This guest lecture is held in conjunction with the opening of TCNJ Art Gallery’s featured exhibition, Art Amongst War: Visual Culture in Afghanistan, 1979 – 2014, on display March 5 through April 17, 2014.
