Not to Go and not to Stay

Nicht Gehen und nicht Bleiben (Orig.) / 2005 / Germany / 5 min

“Not to Go and not to Stay” is a short film about an inner conflict of enforced voyage or migration, the simultaneaous and interfering wish to stay in a place as well as to leave it.





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
