Miléna Desse, The Sun and the Looking Glass – for one easily forgets but the tree remembers (2020)
On a land perpetually threatened by colonial appropriation, the transmission of history and narratives plays a peculiar and vital role.
The Sun and the Looking Glass - for one easily forgets but the tree remembers is an essay-film which paints a portrait of a place on a hill above Ein Qiniya, a Palestinian village in the West Bank, with two houses from the late Ottoman period.
Looking at the objects uncovered during their renovations through a magnifying lens, the film performs the creation of narratives, through dynamic processes of revelation and disappearance.
