Hose in Hose

Palestine, 2016, 19’

This video documents an attempt to provide Gaza with potable water through connecting the largest number of water hoses to the inhabitants of the West Bank, to then connect the water hoses to each other, pumping water into Gaza.
It contains recorded conversations with the inhabitants while my colleague and I went around the West Bank to ask them to lend us water hoses. Gaza is 7 kilometers away from the West Bank.Hamza Badran
