Nation Estate

Larissa Sansour [Pal.-Dan, 2012, 9 min, num., VOSTA/Original version with English subtitles]

Ce film de science-fiction offre une dystopie clinique, mais aussi humoristique, sur l’impasse au Moyen-Orient. Il explore une solution verticale à la fondation d’un état palestinien: un gratte-ciel colossal qui loge toute la population palestinienne, vivant désormais dans la « haute société ».

 

Nation Estate reveals a sinister account of an entire population restricted to a single skyscraper, with each Palestinian city confined to a single floor. The film is a sci-fi that offers a clinically dystopian, yet humorous approach to the deadlock in the Middle East. It explores a vertical solution to Palestinian statehood: one colossal skyscraper housing the entire Palestinian population – now finally living the high life.
