A Hot Sandfilled Wind

b.h. Yael

2006, 13:00 minutes, colour, English, Hebrew & Arabic


A Hot Sandfilled Wind expresses the despair and hope of contemporary politics in Israel/Palestine. This video, based on a poem by Nadia Habib, visually acknowledges, in the context of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land, that Israelis and Palestinians live and work, and suffer loss, side by side; and that mutual recognition is the only basis for hope.

Part 3 of the Palestine Trilogy: documentations in history, land & hope.
