Eyas Al-Mokdad – Bloodshed

Bloodshed (2012) by Eyas Al-Mokdad operates with strongly manipulated – distorted and color-filtered – images showing symbolic objects of oppression. These long shots of black army boots, military awards, and the blinding light of an interrogation lamp create a very tense atmosphere that turns into a silent tribute to the martyrs in the last scene with an endless river of blood flowing.
