60 UNITS OF TIME


Directed by | Raad Raad

Genre documentary  |  Length: 1mins  |  Year of production: 2008


This 60second experimental short speaks to 60 years of Palestinian dispossession through an enigmatic sequence of freeze frames, interrupted actions, and rhythms captured from the refugee camps of Beirut by Raad Raad of the progressive artists’ network Camps Studio (Studio Moukhayyamat). The independent collective is comprised of Palestinian and Lebanese artists working in Lebanon which creates experimental artwork and media across various genres and platforms. From their statement: “we work in collaboration with our peoples who deal with the burdens of imperialism and economic injustice every day. Most of our inspiration and work comes from the Palestinian Refugee Camps.”
