Video excerpt

When Noam Chomsky was invited to give a talk in Birzeit University in 2010, he was denied entry at Israel’s airport. Shortly after, Dana Weiss from Israel’s Television Channel 2 met with him at a hotel lobby in Amman, Jordan for a 40 minute interview during which deep ideological tensions surfaced.

In this video, the interview language is recomposed into a monologue, told by a character who is a hybrid of the interviewer and the interviewee.
