24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Field of Infinity
Inspired by Italian Renaissance art, the filmmaker transforms news reports of protests in the Gaza Strip into a painting of people and the landscape, as if the boundaries of fields and meadows were a place for overcoming political limitations and the ability of an expansive viewpoint presented the ideal of inhabiting the visible.
"The struggle for liberation intertwines with nature rejuvenation, creating an array of reflections." G. Silberstein
