a film by Keren Kraizer
The film , shot this last exceptional year, lies between an experimental documentary, poetic dance video, a travel journey and a jurnalistic testimony of the time. It follows temporary communities, ephemeral assemblies, groups of people in search of resilience or resistance, in their contexts:
Lanzarote, a volcanic island, a non-politicized landscape that hosts the passersby, a community of travelers and nomads that search for alternative ways of habitating. This land holds space for suspense, adventure, friendship, intimacy, playfulness, the pleasure of silence and the impotence of dwelling.
Israel, Jerusalem, a political vortex, a land of all the goods and all the gods claimed by everybody. In an endeavor to suspend, prevent, or change the current catastrophe, the normalization of a sick government, the protesting community engage by placing their bodies on the tragic theater of the public square, disturbing the order by simultaneously performing anger and love.
With gratitude to these people I have lived a fragment of time with.
