Paradise now (2005)
»We are already dead«, it is stated in this disillusioned glimpse from a place tired of oppression, frightening in its fatalism, bitterness and powerless desperation. Futile rituals of terrorism, sacrifice and martyrdom are grasped as salvation, like religion perverted. Details make a difference. Children failing in their attempts to fly a kite with palestinian colors. A last supper with thirteen around the table. A sad, brief goodbye kiss. And finally, the inevitable.
