Recommend this film

It is 1998 and Israel is turning fifty. Mograbi is hired by Israeli Television to document numerous lavish celebrations of the nation's anniversary. At the same time, a veteran Palestinian television producer, Daoud Kutaub, hires him to document a wave of evictions of Palestinians. Meanwhile, Mograbi is facing the prospect of losing his own home. The filmmaker obsessively turns the camera on himself as he desperately tries to make sense of his entangled life.

Mograbi masterfully blurs the lines between fact and fiction, between the personal and the political - a metaphor for modern Israeli life.

The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
