Electrical Gaza (2015), one of the films for which Nashashibi has been nominated for the 2017 Turner Prize, combines her observations of domestic life in Gaza with animated sequences that reflect on issues of community. Images of families and friends engaged in everyday activities are punctuated with stark reminders of the local political conditions, while physical and imagined borders amplify the sense of geographical isolation.

In Lovely Young People (2012) Scottish Ballet dancers are seen indirectly, reflected through mirrors and through the eyes of local people from Glasgow’s Southside, who are invited to walk in during rehearsals, penetrating the closed world of the dance company.  

The programme will also include a selection of shorts spanning Nashashibi's output as a filmmaker.
