Festivals: M:ST 5.

A performer echos the movements of Hassam Abdo, a young Palestinian boy stopped at an Israeli army checkpoint with a bomb attached to his body. In this performative echo a man enacts and repeats the gestures of the boy while a second performer, a woman, embodies all that intervenes from behind the plane of the camera; the soldiers, the viewer, the camera itself.
