ASX.TV: Richard Mosse – “Shahid” (2009)

A short terror video made in Gaza. Possibly the only such video ever made by non-Palestinian producers. As a result, the representation breaks with the conventions of the Palestinian suicide video genre. In Arabic, “shahid” means martyr, or witness.

By Richard Mosse, August 2009
Cinematography and Editing by Trevor Tweeten
