OCCUPAZION

Genre fiction  |  Length: 10mins  |  Year of production: 2007


Enas Muthaffar’s collaboration with French dancer choreographer Jean Gaudin takes as its starting point a slight realigning of the (in)famous Balfour Declaration of 1917:

“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the PALESTINIAN people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing JEWISH communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by the Jews in any other country”.
