A requiem for a small piece of land, Land Confiscation Order 06/24/T explores the notion of territory as constitutive for national and 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.

Land Confiscation Order, film, 10’, Larissa Sansour, 2007
