Revolution, 2006
Khaled Hafez

Single-Channel split screen video
Hi-Def & mimi-DV
4 minutes

An experimental screen is split on the three flag colors: Red, White and Black. The colors represent the three promises of the 1952 Pan-Arab military coup-d’etat / revolution: Social equity, Liberty and Unity.
We learn throughout the 4 minute duration that what remains of the broken promises are the social equity of the military gun, the pseudo-liberty of the multinational / transcontinental corporate economy, and the unity of chopping heads representing the worldwide rising right wing religious fundamentalism.
