DE GROTE BOODSCHAP [THE BIG MESSAGE] | OMER FAST

Reported by Jia Le

Omer Fast was born in Jerusalem in the year 1972. He works with film, video, and television footage to examine how individuals and histories interact with each other in narrative. He mixes sound and image into stories that often veer between the personal and the media’s account of current events and history.

In [The Big Message], Omer fast mocked the style of a television serial to examine the overlapping and often contradictory narratives that exist in domestic settings. His camera moves between three adjacent apartments as it follows characters in conversation.

Their desire to understand the dynamics between them forces them to reflect on the present and recall events from the past. Reflecting on how stories circulate are received by people, this video continually shifts its perspective on what has happened, and what might happen next.
