Learning Pain from Trees
2005, 3:00 min, color, sound

The video takes place in a typical Israeli forest in the Carmel area, following a single figure wandering in it. Soon it turns out that the forest had been burnt, the trunks are sooty, and the soil popping out from underneath the pine needles is black. The figure, whose face is invisible, passes between the trees, and like a shaman tries to heal them and peel off the burnt layer.
