Let him eat Bread

Combining visual memories, which are detached from their own “reality”, the film Let him eat Bread extends the genre of documentary to question its own impossibility. Examining the tasks of framing as an act of transmission and connection, the film merges footage from Al Jazeera, clippings from different radio interviews, and quotes from diverse texts. The title of the film Let him eat Bread, taken from a New York Times article about noise pollution in the city of Cairo, refers to a metaphorical Arabic phrase which ultimately remains untranslatable, remaining foreign in itself. It revolves around the association, acceleration, compression, and prolongation of film-time as well as the manipulation and accentuation of the picture frame. Duration: 12 minutes, 2008.
