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 the incident, Dana Weiss from Israel’s Television Channel 2 met with him at a hotel lobby in Amman, Jordan for a 40 minute interview. Deep ideological tensions surfaced.

The interview language is recomposed into a new text, told by a protagonist who is a hybrid of the interviewer and the interviewee.
