Schizophrenic State by Guli Silberstein


Independent filmmaker Mr. Guli Silberstein presents us two images on the TV screen: one where an Israeli soldier is being lynched in Ramallah, and in the other a Palestinian child and his father being fired at in Gaza. With his images Silberstein poses as a question: How can horror be constructed in words? He portrays the conflict as a schizophrenic situation - two sides trapped in a cycle of violence. Silberstein is in a personal schizophrenic state as well, witnessing images in New York - not here or there. Are these images real?
