Erased,___Ascent of the Invisible

(Tirss, Rihlat al Sou’oud ila al Mar’i)

Halwani's exemplary structural intelligence and moral sophistication allows him to avoid the pratfalls of cinematic archivality: every minute counts. (Cinema Scope)

Erased is a powerful, thoughtful film on death, trauma, and nationhood. (Scene Creek)

Thirty-five years ago, I witnessed the kidnapping of a man I know.
He has disappeared since.
Ten years ago, I caught a glimpse of his face while walking in the street, but I wasn’t sure it was him.
Parts of his face were torn off, but his features had remained unchanged since the incident. Yet something was different, as if he wasn’t the same man.
