Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Raed Andoni. France/Palestine/Qatar/Switzerland. 2017, 94 mins. Digital projection. In Arabic with English subtitles. In Raed Andoni’s formally bold and psychologically rigorous gloss on the theater of the oppressed, former inmates of Jerusalem’s Al-Moskobiya interrogation center come together to reconstruct the site and events of their trauma. Under Andoni’s provocative and forceful direction, they perform both scripted and improvised scenes to dramatize their experiences of torture, dehumanizing and isolation. Their collaboration strives to wrest control of each of their intolerable memories, but sometimes their playacting proves all too real, and it’s hard to know the difference between a breakthrough and pushing too far. New York City premiere.
