Watching a video clip by Guli Silberstein sampled from a news sequence, we see a family, which was ousted from its home, as it tries to hide behind a wall in a street that has become a battlefield. The condensed video clip is slowed down and magnified to show additional dimensions of the incident. The processed image creates a contradiction between content and form, and produces a disconcerting effect of both confusion and anxiety.
