Special screening during the exhibition of "Speed of Light"
Special screening during the exhibition of "Speed of Light" curated by Eyal Danon and Galit Eilat. Johan Grimonprez's Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y invites us to meet the romantic skyjackers of the 1960s and 1970s, who by the 1990s were gone and replaced by stories of anonymous bombs in suitcases. It can also be read as foreseeing the 9/11 attack. The film tracks the politics behind this change in the practice of terror attacks and their media coverage by blending archival footage of hijackings with other themes, including fast food, disco, and home movies. Part of Video zone 4 Festival.
