Palestine-Israel Double Bill

If Jerusalem is the capital of both Israel and Palestine, and on the eve of Netanyahu's visit to a historically Palestine-friendly India, we bring you two films with surprising images and voices that cut across the neighbour-relation of these two countries, locked in a battle of intimacies. One film is set in the heart of Jerusalem, and the other in Tel Aviv (with a little bit of holiday in India).

Eight Palestinian families living in and around Jerusalem city use their TV screens to look out into their neighbourhood, via a camera mounted on the rooftops of their homes, tripods made of stones. Their speech travels between the farthest things and the innermost fantasies.

A season of long films

Pad.ma invites you to
Rivers without Banks
at CAMP

27th December, 2013 through 27th January, 2014


Before the start of a new year; and among big and small resolutions for the future we chose to ask ourselves what is free cinema today, what is its political and perceptual economy, and what could we summon of its powers, before embarking on new journeys of making and thinking.

Rivers without Banks is a screening program of films whose durations extend beyond conventional length. But importantly, this is not a collection put together quantitatively, even as we may argue that the epic scales present in the chosen films carry the weight of histories, and put together chronologically show us a century where individual everyday lives face the annals of terrible power; where the human condition battles with nature and technology, with love and loss, with good and evil.

الجار قبل الدار

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a CCTV security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. A voice finds an image, an image is probed beneath its surface, thoughts withdraw or rebound.In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.

60 mins, SD CCTV video and sync audio.
Filmed in 2009 and edited into this film in 2011.
