ٍStratification of the moon by Miha Vipotnik - tomorrow at Station

Stil from Stratification of the Moon by Miha Vipotnik showing yours truly
Last year, I had the privilege of embarking on a wild adventure - a movie about the making off for an exhibition, and whereas I dropped from the exhibition due to artistic differences, this did not mean not continuing to be in the movie. The tension that arose was brilliantly used by Slovenian artist and curator Miha Vipotnik (disclosure: Miha and myself are friends for a long time) into the film - which of course does not center solely around our divergence of opinion but also speaks of us as a society,
Naturally, the presence of Farid Chehab (honorary chairman of Leo Burnett MENA) adds explanation and history to the narrative which engulfs the war and its raminifaction, while artists and cohorts run amock in the narrative.
The movie will premiere tomorrow at Station at 9 PM, I already saw it and Miha's poetic language is present visually throughout!
