Abounaddara's films draw on cinematic legacies of filmmakers using experimental methods to document revolution, war, and growth in times of crisis. A selection of films mixed with Abounaddara shorts has been organized into two days of educational screenings in support of New School classes. Many of the collective's members remember watching a promotional short film from the Syrian government as children each time they went to the movie theatre. Following this model each feature film is proceeded by an Abounaddara short film. Program developed in consultation with exhibition curators Dork Zabunyan and Anne Marquez.

Films include:

Abounaddara, Children of Halfaya
Roberto Rossellini, Germany Year Zero (1948) (78 min)
