Father-land featured in Lyon

Overgrown abandoned runway in Nicosia airport

Our essay film, Father-land, has been selected for the special Flow34 film programme at the IAMCR conference in Lyon, the annual International Association for Media and Communication Research forum for the global community of media and communication scholars and researchers (9 to 13 July 2023). This year’s conference theme, ‘Inhabiting the planet: Challenges for media, communication and beyond’, addresses and debates the key issues of cities and territories, digitalization of society and the technological transformation of nature – key problematics that require sociopolitical debate and governance (Feenberg, 1999, 2002).

‘Father-land’ is one of three films presented for the Space: Transformations and Boundaries panel, which interprets the emptiness, abandonment, contestations, conversations, and transformations of different spaces in different contexts. The Flow34 film programme was curated by Nico Carpentier, IAMCR President and Extraordinary Professor at Charles University, Prague. IAMCR conference delegates will be able to view the film online throughout the summer from 26 June to 12 September.
