A Space Exodus



In A Space Exodus, Sansour posits the idea of sending the first Palestinian into space and referencing Armstrong's moon landing, she interprets this theoretical gesture as "a small step for a Palestinian, a giant leap for mankind".

Happy Days


About the Film

Happy Days exposes everyday Palestinian life under Israeli occupation. In the video, a collage of footage shot on location in the occupied territories is accompanied by the theme music from the 70s sitcom Happy Days.

The idea is to subjugate international politics to a format normally associated with entertainment and thereby call attention to the blurry boundary between the two.
