Whitechapel Gallery is hosting Where is My Territory?, an afternoon screening of short films exploring the transformation of landscapes, at their London space on September 6, 3-6pm.

In Where is My Territory?, GCC member Monira Al Qadiri explores the modern-day apocalypse with the Werner-Herzog inspired Behind the Sun (2013), Ali Cherri zeroes in on Lebanon and Syria with The Disquiet (2013) and Pipe Dreams (2012), Köken Ergun considers the martyrdom of Hussein in Ashura (2012), and Basim Magdy takes a look a cynicism and the “persistent search for a seemingly essential unknown” in My Father Looks For An Honest City (2010).

The afternoon event is followed by a Q&A with participating artist Ali Cherri.
