Hatikvah -The Hope
Computer Animation
Date: 1991

In 1989 whilst working in Israel as a Community artist in Arab-Jewish Relations I was arrested by the Israeli Military. After being held for 12 days I was released without being charged.

During my 12 days in jail I kept a diary and it is this diary that provides the framework for this animation in which I raise a number of issues about my relationship to Israel.

The central theme of this animation is the story of Moderchai Vanunu, the Israeli peace activist arrested by the Israeli authorities for making public information about Israel's nuclear arsenal.

Vanunu is still being held by the Israeli authorities. If you are interested in joining the fight for his release click here.
