John McCarthy : You Cant Hide the Sun - A journey through Israel and Palestine (read in Nov 2015) - this book gave me a context in which to interpret Sadik Alfraji' s video.
Sadik Alfraji - The House That My Father Built (Once Upon a Time)
A 6 minute multi media installation which I found very moving. It seemed to illustrate the story of family, meals, home life, being trapped or forced to move, exile, loss. Beautiful B&W drawings used for animation. It was accompanied by music - which enhanced the poignancy of the images.
