Akram Zaatari is a video artist and curator who lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon. The author of more than 30 videos and video installations, Zaatari has been exploring issues pertinent to the Lebanese condition, particularly the mediation of territorial conflicts and wars through television and the logic of religious and national resistance, as in his documentary All is Well on the Border (1997). He is also interested in the circulation and production of images in the context of the geographical division of the Middle East, as seen in his feature length films This Day (2003) and In this House (2005). Zataari is co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (Beirut), and has contributed articles to scholarly journals such as Third Text, Bomb, Framework, Transition, and Parachute. In addition to his presentation at SFAI, San Francisco Cinematheque at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will present a screening and discussion on December 3 of Zataari's Military Culture, a curated series of short films and videos from Syria, Turkey, Palestine, and Israel.
