McKinney Avenue Contemporary is turning to film. Twice this spring, it is screening Wael Shawkys Cabaret Crusades. The MAC is allowed to screen the film only two times, which will be at 4:30 p.m. April 6 and 7 p.m. May 11.
Shawky is an Egyptian artist, whose marionette animation films are titled Cabaret Crusades: Horror Show File, 2010 and Cabaret Crusades: The Path to Cairo, 2012. The first film stars 200 year-old marionettes from the Italian Lupi Collection and retells the first crusades from the years 1096-1099. The film provides a precise description of the places in the Middle East and Europe that formed the backdrop for the early Crusades.
The second film, Cabaret Crusades: The Path to Cairo, uses hand-crafted marionettes created by Shawky himself, say his hosts at the MAC.
