Theatre of War – An HD picture worth thousands of words!

August 22, 2010

American, ART, Middle East

Shot in Saddam Hussein’s hilltop palace in the mountains overlooking the  River Tigris, Theatre of War is a slow, virtually static video piece  redolent of classical history painting. Audio was recorded at the  official US military hand-over ceremony at the nearby city of Saniya. A  mullah’s prayer for unity among Arabs is spoken, after which the  pan-Arab national anthem, Mawtini (My Homeland) is played, emphasizing  Arab national solidarity and a pan-Arab territory. Made in Iraq in March  2009.
