untitled part 3b: (as if) beauty never ends...

Jayce Salloum

2004, 11:22 minutes, colour/B&W, Arabic with English subtitles


A more ambient work of many things, including orchards blooming and plants growing, superimposed over raw footage from post massacre filmings of the 1982 massacre at Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps in Lebanon. Cloud footage, Hubbell space imagery, the visible body crosscuts and abstract shots of slow motion water, add to this reflection of the past, its present context and forbearance. With the voice over of Abdel Majid Fadl Ali Hassan (a 1948 refugee living in Bourg El Barajneh camp) recounting a story told by the rubble of this home in Palestine, and the collection of audio accompanying the clips, the tape permeates into an intense essay on dystopia in contemporary times. An elegiac response working directly viscerally and metaphorically.
