In the spring of 2006, Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, travelled together to Palestine and Israel, searching, researching and witnessing. the situation. From their trips, they created a series of videos that document their encounters with people struggling, resisting, surviving, suffering and living their everyday lives. Some of those include a geographer, a professor, an activist, a former detainee, an architect, a bedouin …. Each video corresponds to one trip, a particular journey from the 16 days, relying on the material captured only that day, from different situations and places including: Jerusalem, Naqab, Hebron, Lydd , Bethlehem, Ramallah, Nablus, Shuafat and more…
What Everybody Knows, is a play on what everybody ignores possibly. It is an attempt to really think about the question of Palestine and reformulate it through an experience that these individuals offer in each case. It unfolds in a series of questions that call for more questions.
Together all 16 of these situations create a diagram or a map and may provoke thought / discussion about the social, psychological, and political dimensions of contemporary life for Palestinians in occupied Palestine and in Israel.
