Dirty Pictures

Moving from one hotel in Bethlehem to another in East Jerusalem, the filmmaker encounters a series of problems involving a ceiling, a video camera and the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Dirty Pictures is the seventh episode in the Hotel Diaries series, a collection of video recordings made in hotel rooms which relate personal experiences to contemporary world events. Other works in the series currently include Frozen War (Ireland, 2001), Museum Piece (Germany, 2004), Throwing Stones (Switzerland, 2004), B & B (England, 2005) and Pyramids/Skunk (Netherlands 2006/7). They can be shown individually or as a chronological group.
