Immediate Proximity — Sedi Ghadiri

Immediate Proximity reflects on the issue of Israeli settlement expansion in the West Bank and its impact on rural areas. An analogy is drawn between imageries of the violent transformation of rural space through aggressive settlement policy and the random aesthetics of an 8mm film experiment that seems to displace time.

Sedi Ghadiri is a London-based filmmaker who has specialized in experimental as well as conventional narrative filmmaking. Her past works have dealt with themes about the Middle East and the Arab World. Currently she is developing a narrative feature tackling the issue of violence and coming-of-age.
