  • SCREWDRIVER : In 1992, Al-Amari Refugee Camp in Palestine is a collection of cement cubicles, angles, colors, smells and sounds. It’s tight, but eight year olds Ziad and Ramzi find the space to explore. While playing around with old tools, Ziad accidentally cuts Ramzi. Ramzi stabs Ziad with a screwdriver. Immediately, they become best friends.
  • MEMORY OF THE LAND : A body is trapped at a checkpoint; an essential mechanism of the Israeli occupation. The body is pierced by structural and physical violence, which is aggressive and arbitrary and prevents and attacks its free movement and existence.
