8mm film. 2013
Traverse maps a woman’s reflective journey about the precarious states of being in exile. In an exchange of emails, I interviewed a Palestinian woman who writes poems about her life in exile. I was concerned with how exile affect the feminine psyche? What does it produce in terms of dreams, deliriums, nightmares? And what links the experience of exile to memory?
“The eternal gaze of the horizon, the reverie of water, the uncontrollable heavy waters, maternal water & feminine water, purity and morality, violent waters and the voice of waters.”
The film is a poetic narrative about survival.
