A number of (non) essential ideas for (resisting) understanding in the work of Basim Magdy; and the world.

I will be introducing a screening of Basim Magdy’s beautiful short films at Bristol’s Arnolfini, Thursday May 18th. If you are or were unable to make the screening, you can read my short blog post for Arnolfini here: Notes from the road: an epic and enchanting excursion through the films of Basim Magdy.

I have also written about Magdy’s films for FIPRESCI, following a curated screening by Julian Ross in 2015 at IFFR, Basim Magdy Explores the Farthest Reaches of our Dreamlike Haze in “Waking Life”.
