Two Meetings and a Funeral - A Conversation between Naeem Mohaiemen and Hendrik Folkerts

Hendrik Folkerts

This epic film, shown across three screens, tells an almost forgotten story of the rise and fall of the Non-Aligned Movement, an alliance of Third-World countries that tried to form an alternative to the West and the Soviet Bloc. Hendrik Folkerts spoke with him during a conference in Chicago, where Mohaiemen had worked through another politically laden history: Muhammad Ali's Bangladesh passport (initially presented at documenta 14 Parliament of Bodies, curated by Paul B. Preciado).
