Off Frame AKA Revolution Until Victory
Fall Grant 2013 - Production/Post-Production Stage
Current project status: COMPLETED
What is left today from the Palestinian revolution are some images and sounds, pieces of film scattered around the world and preserved in tins categorised by other people. These films record the life of people who are no longer on Earth; places that have changed; a history that doesn’t have a place in memory. ‘Off Frame’ narrates the story of Palestinian revolutionary cinema by following the life of the Palestine Film Unit, a film group that was established in 1968 and that developed with the revolution until the Israeli invasion of Beirut in 1982.
