MoMA’s Festival of International Nonfiction Film and Media

Image : "Samouni Road" directed by Stefano Savona

MoMA’s annual celebration of innovation in nonfiction film is dedicated to advocating the vision of storytellers who bring new perspectives on the world and new ways to consider truth in an ever-changing world. The 2019 edition presents a lineup of features and shorts from around the globe, including several world premieres.

The eight-day series kicks off with the premiere of French artist Prune Nourry’s Serendipity, a sensitive exploration of Nourry’s battle with breast cancer that celebrates the power of art in healing and the resilience of the human spirit.

On the occasion, MoMA also features the Franco-Italian documentary Samouni Road directed by Stefano Savona. Vérité video is here combined with striking black-and-white animation and simulated drone footage to dramatize a catastrophe: in January 2009, 29 members of the Samouni family were killed in an Israeli army attack on Gaza.
