Green Laser

John Greyson

2012, 15:25 minutes, colour, English


In June, 2011, John Greyson joined a freedom flotilla of 10 boats trying to sail to Gaza to break Israel's blockade of this Palestinian port. Green Laser weaves together interviews with activists and footage of the flotilla on the high seas, pursued by the Greek coast guard. These documentary scenes are inventively interwoven with entomological hornet lore, Riverdance moves and rewritten clips from Exodus (with a shirtless Paul Newman) to explore questions of solidarity, civil disobedience, queer activism and the growing boycott movement.
