Imagining Palestine

Directed by Iman Jabreh

“Imagining Palestinian” reinfoces a conceptual country while questioning how one could manifest a country. Is imagining considered a beginning or a denial of reality? In this abstract short film, I use a collection of Palestinian keffiyehs and various scarves to create an abstract landscape. There is a playful conversation with light and fabric. I accompany the art video with a script about nature from the Quran. The soundtrack also becomes a playful interaction with a man-made country.
