Spaces of Intimacy

Quneitra 74

Mohammad Malas
1974 • Syria • 20’

A ceremonial gathering of the villagers of Quneitra on the Syrian Golan Heights after the Israeli army withdrew, rendering the town inhabitable. The press takes photographs of the rubble. One woman starts running in the streets between the ruins, always making sure the audience does not leave her alone, contacting us through the camera. She strolls through the streets and alleys of her home town, enters a house, cleans the shards of a window. A little girl appears, and an old woman with her hens. Three females of three generations connected in solitude.
