Raad Raad 2008 docu 1 min.

This 60second experimental short speaks to 60 years of Palestinian
dispossession through an enigmatic sequence of freeze frames, interrupted
actions, and rhythms captured from the refugee camps of Beirut by Raad Raad
of the progressive artists' network Camps Studio (Studio Moukhayyamat). The
independent collective is comprised of Palestinian and Lebanese artists
working in Lebanon which creates experimental artwork and media across
various genres and platforms. From their statement: "we work in
collaboration with our peoples who deal with the burdens of imperialism and
economic injustice every day. Most of our inspiration and work comes from
the Palestinian Refugee Camps."
