Public Call for short falafel footage

Wherever you are in the world, we are looking for a short footage of a falafel eating, or other falafel experience. This can be shot on a mobile phone, video camera, or real film. It can be spontaneous or constructed. The footage will be screened as part of the Falafel Road residency during the whole month of February 2010 at Iniva, London, and Artsadmin, London. It might also find its way into the final Falafel Road film.

In this London residency, inspired by chapter six, Orientalism, of the Novel of Nonel and Vovel by Oreet Ashery and Larissa Sansour, Falafel is used a contested national symbol in the Near East and itís diasporic manifestations.

During this month-long residency, Ashery and Sansour, with Artsadmin and the Live Art Development Agency, will continue to address forms of cultural colonialism in relation to the Middle East through the outlandish and irregular means they have begun to develop in the book. Falafel Road will comprise a series of twenty meals at various eateries in London. Some meals open to the public to join, other will include invited guests.

The idea to film the meals is inspired by Gordon Matta Clarck restaurant movie from 1970s - The SoHo restaurant co-op Matta-Clarck co-founded in 1971, which served as a social meeting place.

Please send your footage as Quick Time files (.mov) either electronically via services such as www.yousendit.com, with a link to timowenjones@gmail.com, or by post to Tim Owen Jones, Falafel Road Project Manager, c/o Artsadmin, Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6AB, UK to arrive no later than Friday 19 February 2010.
