A sister project of redeem, the Kino Projekt (2009-ongoing) is a collaboration between visual artist Siska and performance artist Franziska Pierwoß. Kino Al-Amir was part/teil von Draussenstadt in 2022.

The Kino Projekt is a traveling cinema that focuses on local amateur film archive and questions of cultural memory. For this edition the Kino Projekt  took place in Berlin as a Drive-in- cinema in collaboration with Hopscotch Reading Room screening a program with a special focus on Syria, Lebanon and  the MENA region. In 2011 the Kino Projekt travelled to Aleppo and due to the out-break of the Syrian civil war, could not be realised on site until today.
