1983 is the year of the massacre of Sabra and Shatila. For many of us, especially those of us in Syria, images of the event were not broadcast. The horrors could be well imagined, though, and they have been joined in my imagination with ideas of the events taking place today in the Middle East. In this video, a victim-like figure is shown bound, crossing the space as if in flight. By the end, he is shown unshackled. In the space that he leaves, a new city is built.
