I started writing letters


Essay film, 13'25''

Screened in Cinema Bellevaux, 27th of June 2015


In 2011 I had the opportunity to travel to a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan for my master's thesis. In 2014 I was still thinking about it. In contact by skype and facebook with the Palestinians, I decided to write letters to different people involved to reflect and criticize. I published the letters, but still felt not everything was said.


This essay film is a kind of reading of the letters with images pointing on the doubts and hesitations that were part of this project: the project of travelling and trying to understand a culture, the project of making a master's thesis in architecture, the project of writing letters ... to finally get an answer by the refugees.
