On Finger Tips

Ashraf Mtaweh

On Finger Tips is a video installation which poetically simulates, through documentary footage, a final visit to the Bisri valley threatened to disappear due to the construction of a controversial dam. This narrative journey is told through the voices of those who have inhabited the land and probably taken a last glimpse of a landscape that is inherently theirs.
