MUBI x NANG Present: IN & OUT

MUBI Special

We’re proud to launch a collaboration with gorgeous Asian cinema magazine NANG, showing a selection of films extensively explored in their new issue, dedicated to “filmmakers in transit” under the title of IN & OUT.

“Featuring artists and filmmakers who voluntarily or involuntarily moved outside of their country of origin, this Issue focuses on hyphenated identities and films that exist in the in-between. Ranging from image-led dialogues to in-depth essays, this Issue hopes to serve as a counter to the narrative of hostile simplification that has embroiled the topic of migration in recent years by celebrating the diversity of voices and experiences that the hyphen brings.” —Julian Ross & Maryam Tafakory, guest editors of Nang #4

The Nights of Zayandeh-Rood

Mohsen Makhmalbaf Iran, 1990


MUBI & Nang’s focus on “filmmakers in transit” resumes with Iranian New Wave pioneer—now living in exile—Mohsen Makhmalbaf. Originally removed from circulation by the censors, this incisive, formally intrepid socio-political critique sees the light 25 years late, having lost none of its relevance.


Basma Alsharif France, 2017


In collaboration with Nang magazine and their “filmmakers in transit” focus we’re presenting the entrancing debut by nomad artist Basma Alsharif. Inspired by the mythological snake that devours its own tail, Ourobouros tackles historical causality by interrogating the cyclical nature of time.
