The Story of Milk and Honey

The failure of an unknown author to write a love story about the Levant grounds this short experiential video exploring the positionality of the individual in tellings of history. Layering voiceover, images, letters and songs, a story of defeat becomes a journey of transformation. Part of a larger multimodal project, The Story of Milk and Honey confronts questions of nationalism and orientalism arising from representations of the Middle-East.
