Not A Matter of If But When

“Not A Matter Of If But When” was shot in 2005-6 in Damascus, Syria.
Over a period of several months, we worked with performer Rami Farah to record short improvised sequences that captured the uncertainty, chaos and stasis of life in Damascus during this time. 

Exhibited at the Whitney Biennial in 2008 and is in the collection of the Orange County Museum of Art.

32 minutes, 2006, Arabic with English subtitles,
Directed by Julia Meltzer and David Thorne with Rami Farah
