"Once Upon a Time in Damascus" 
A talk by Adam Curtis

Thursday, December 12, 2013, 8 pm | Ashkal Alwan

The strange and forgotten story of America's involvement in Syria back in the 1950s and 60s. How that was wiped from the memory - and replaced by a dream-vision of a world populated by goodies and baddies.

Adam Curtis is a documentary filmmaker and journalist. He works for BBC television in London. His films have won many awards―including six BAFTAs. His series The Power of Nightmares was invited to the Cannes Film Festival in 2005. Curtis also writes multi-media political and cultural essays on a BBC website using longer sections of film from the archives, www.bbc.co.uk/adamcurtis.

This talk is part of the exhibition Adam Curtis: The Desperate Edge of Now, organised for Chapter 1 of the Home Workspace Program (HWP) 2013-14. Screenings continue daily Monday-Friday 5-9 PM, until Dec, 20. See the screening schedule and more information on the exhibition here.
