Biography

Iqbal Barkat wrote his PhD on novelty in cinema, tracing the history through from the work of Dziga Vertov, a pioneering film-maker in the early Soviet Union.

As part of his research he has produced the independent feature film Mortarswhich seeks to explore what Robert Koehler calls the 'cinema of in-between-ness' - refusing categories of fiction or non-fiction. It follows the life of a woman whose house was destroyed by demolition exercises carried out by the Australian Defence Force. She has lived in a broken house for over fifty years and is still seeking reparations.

His research interests include Independent Cinema; Early Soviet Cinema; Dance; Community Filmmaking; The Cinematic Practice of Dziga Vertov; The Philosophy of Alain Badiou.
