Land Confiscation Order 06/24/T (2007)
Video, 10' 45''
Essentially a requiem for a small piece of land, Land Confiscation Order 06/24/T explores the notion of territory as constitutive of not only national, but also personal identity. It in turn becomes a eulogy for the dream of viable statehood and exposes Palestinian identity as a block that not only political and cultural, but also geographical factors chop away at on a daily basis. And as such, the video investigates the idea of the perception of the self as shaped by restrictions imposed by the other.
