Explaining the Law to Kwame

Roee Rosen
Israel 2020
23min
OV w/ EN subtitles
V'20

The topic of the lecture – a 12 year-old Palestinian girl sentenced to over four months in adult prison for carrying a knife – is real, but the lecturer (brilliantly played by Hani Furstenberg) and her content are not. Israeli multimedia artist Roee Rosen conjures an academic address that begins normally but soon devolves into erotic musings, self-doubts, and a riot of metaphors. “I pretend or profess to tell something that has a documentary status, but the scholarly mode becomes parodic” (Rosen). (Adrian Martin)
