Richard Mosse, Theatre of War

« Theatre of War was shot from one of Saddam Hussein's hilltop palaces situated in the mountains overlooking the River Tigris in central Iraq. It is a slow, virtually static video piece redolent of classical history painting. Audio was recorded at the official US military hand-over ceremony at the nearby city of Saniya. A mullah's prayer for unity among Arabs is spoken, after which the pan-Arab national anthem, Mawtini (My Homeland) is played, emphasizing Arab national solidarity and a pan-Arab territory. March 2009. Cinematography by Trevor Tweeten / Digital Color by Jerome Thelia »
