Recommend this film

A swiss missionary leaves for South Africa in the late 1940s. During 25 years she records the daily life and official events; work and holidays, anniversaries, shared moments. Years go by and the images are stocked in a box, with this double memory, individual and collective. A personal a look on the world, revealing both a local and fragmentary testimony, as well as on a wider level, life in a mission station in the heart of a country in the grips of racial segregation. Through a dialogue between words and images, the film deconstructs the filmer’s point of view by making up a subjective portrait.

“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.
