Just another day
"One day of an arab in Europe after September 11."
a day when his city is struck by another terror attack, a sad day because he is suffering after the woman he loves left him – precisely because he is an Arab. A day just like any other day that reflects the difficult post 9/11 status of Arabs in the Western world.
Ingenious camera work, minimalist action, vivid emotive colours and expressive metaphers - the film conveys the double dilemma of collective incrimination and emotional turmoil of Arab exiles. More generally, it can create awareness of how profoundly - sometimes with devastating results - politics encroaches on our personal, social and emotional lives. Often enough, we may not realize it.
