About the Film

Filmed in a West Bank neighborhood designed by her architect grandfather in 1956 and now marooned behind an army checkpoint. Instead of making any overtly political point, the film quietly follows aimless lives, lads playing football, a bored child setting fire to a heap of rubbish.

The States of Things



"The States of Things" is a B&W film of a Salvation Army jumble sale that is set to an old Egyptian love song by Um Kolthoum. Elderly ladies rummage through jumble at a sale held by the Salvation Army in Glasgow. 'Jumble sales aren't part of the normal capitalist system, so it doesn’t look quite like a Western Europe in the 21st century. And the music also makes the viewer unsure when or where this is.'
