Philip Horani – LIBERTé

The video LIBERTé, which “could be by Philip Horani” as the closing title mentions, is a painting performance overlapping found footage of the protests, complemented with the sounds of demonstrations, gunshots, bombing and explosions. Horani uses watercolor to sketch up how a demonstration is quelled by the government forces – but eventually the blood-soaked picture transforms into the flag of the Syrian opposition.
