I SIGNED THE PETITION

United Kingdom/Germany/Switzerland, 2018, 11 min, Colour and B&W

Immediately after a Palestinian man signs an online petition, he is thrown into a panic-inducing spiral of self-doubt. Over the course of a conversation with an understanding friend, he analyses, deconstructs and interprets the meaning of his choice to publicly support the cultural boycott of Israel.
