In Defense of the Rocket

Director: Martin Ginestié | Countries of production: United Kingdom | Year: 2015 | Length: 5 min
Language: No dialogue

French director Martin Ginestie documents the rise and fall of the Middle East peace process through a powerful series of news photographs, framed to emphasise the iterative nature of the process, the repetitive images echoing the persistent deadlock so often felt in these negotiations.

The startling images are set to the rhythms of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.
