Ordering Information

In this parody of performance, success, acting, interview format and video technology, director Mahmoud Hojeij portrays six youngsters who are confronted with the difficulties of finding a job. The film does not lend itself to easy categorization and establishes an ambiguous relationship between form and content. Sounds and images are manipulated in order to create a non-linear piece that challenges habitual ways of seeing.
