Two Sides to Every Story

For the National Pavilion UAE's presentation at the 58th Venice Biennale, Nujoom Al Ghanem fuses poetry and filmmaking in 'Passages', a reflection on the universal experience of displacement and alienation.

FOLIO speaks to the Emirati poet and director, and the curators of the pavilion, Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, and takes you inside the immersive installation.
