Six Days
2009 | video | 7'00"
by Ala' Younis

The 7-minute film looks at the state of the Arabs during the six day war. Large numbers of fierce impassioned volunteers registered to join the armed forces at its different fronts in 1967. The film uses the war's documented sounds and footage to reflect on critical moments in a war where a false voice of victory overshadowed the factual image of defeat. Detached stillness is manifested on the seventh day confirming a failed political endeavor.
