One or The Other
Director: Adam Kossoff
Running Time: 56′
A rich visual essay probing the relationship between the homeland and the creation of a nation state, One Or The Other asks if the long distance nationalism of Western diaspora has had more influence than responsibility over modern Israel and Palestine. The persistent narration guides the argument as home movies and archive film overlay long takes of contemporary Israel. The presentation of these different historical periods raises questions of history, loss and the manner in which cinema has been used as a tool for expropriation.
Director Adam Kossoff is expected to attend and participate in a post screening Q&A
