In the Future: Larissa Sansour Sci-Fi Trilogy

Larissa Sansour screens and discusses her sci-fi trilogy: A Space Exodus (2009) depicts a female Palestinian astronaut travelling to outer space in order to claim land for her nation. Nation Estate (2012) explores a vertical solution to Palestinian's diminishing claim to land – a state within a skyscraper. In the Future, They Ate From the Finest Porcelain (2016) features a narrative resistance group burying elaborate porcelain to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands.
