:I Signed the Petition
UK/Germany/Switzerland, 2018, 11 min
A conversation between two friends about the effectiveness and implications of publicly stating support for the cultural boycott of Israel. One friend is wracked with worry having signed a petition asking Radiohead not to play Tel Aviv, the other is more sanguine. Through their conversation we catch a glimpse of what it is to be a Palestinian in today’s world.
