Video selected by MI's curator, Alysse Stepanian:
Israeli-born, London-based artist Guli Silberstein uses documentary footage found online, depicting a young woman who tries to protect a group of civilians from the weapons of Israeli soldiers. This powerful image in “Disturbdance” shows the human side of war. One wonders whether the two soldiers are as affected by the image of this heroic woman, as are the viewers. (also see MI #19)
