A New Life, A New Fight, Elettra Bisogno & Hazem Alqaddi (2021)

graduation 2021 film


35 min., English subtitles

Camera, sound, editing: Elettra Bisogno & Hazem Alqaddi


A meeting between two strangers sparks a desire to understand each other through the medium of film.

They both simultaneously start recording their surroundings on camera, crafting the resulting footage. Elettra from Italy and Hazem from Gaza become the subjects of this film that documents their first moments together. The film deploys into a multi-faceted reality where the North and the South confront each other in a discussion about rights and inequalities, a reality in which we grasp a migration towards each other, while capturing an intimate way of making a film together.
