MOCA Artist Film Series, presented by The Edward F. Limato Foundation, is an active and dynamic platform for the presentation of artist films. Inspired by film and video works in MOCA’s renowned collection, the series will offer engaging and notable screenings and live programs with MOCA collection artists and beyond. With ongoing presentations in the Ahmanson Auditorium, screenings and Q&As will feature artists, historians, and critics in dialogue with special focus on experiments in long-form, narrative or feature-length films. Centered in the cinema capital of the world, these programs will explore the critical issues of our time and our place.

MOCA presents a screening of Dreams Have No Titles followed by a conversation with artist Zineb Sedira and scholar Tiffany E. Barber.

Zineb Sedira's Dreams Have No Titles marks the international debut of the artist's project for the French Pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale, which is being shown at Hamburger Bahnhof for the first time in Germany. Mixing film, sculpture, photography, and performance, the French-Algerian artist weaves together parts of her own biography with the history of cinematographic co-productions and activist films within the context of France, Algeria and Italy.
Sedira (born 1963) has conceived the exhibition space as a movie set where the decors of several films provide the backdrop of a live shoot in which fiction and documentary, the personal and the collective come together. In Dreams Have No Titles the artist not only deals with an important turning point in the history of avant-garde film production. She also presents us with a cautionary tale about the failure of an emancipatory dream that for many people remains an unfulfilled promise.
