A lecture performance structured against Bach’s Violin Concerto in E major in Mustapha Abu Ali’s 1974 film ‘They Do Not Exist’.  The talk ponders the cinematic representation of a Palestinian revolution through the act of rendering it in neighboring landscapes. Live scenes shot in Jordan by Jean-Luc Godard, Masao Adachi, and Abdallah Kawash are borrowed and interplayed culminating in silence.



















Two tracks removed from Adachi; Oraib Toukan (2011), digital copy 
of a 16mm copy transferred to a copy and re-mastered removing everything but the landscape.













Images from Gardening a pitiless mountain dreamed of faraway with its owner only a passing shadow; Oraib Toukan (2011), lecture in three parts.
