"…a theorist, a writer and two video artists—who combined their various skills to tell the story of the killing of a prominent figure of the Hamas, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, perpetrated by members of the Mossad in Dubai a year ago. Over the course of a few days the turn of events was reconstructed by the police services in minute detail, the protagonists identified thanks to the most up-to-date surveillance and identifications systems in existence, all diffused via a spectacular press conference and put into circulation via the Internet. The artists responded to the video by putting it with another video based on the idea of the threshold and the non-place, featuring elements such as turnstiles and sliding doors, airport lounges, hotels and long corridors; while Mahmoud al-Mabhouh is about to be killed, a narrating voice poses vital questions. It is a video of great form and high emotional intensity, that speaks of themes of control and espionage in the age of technology and show-business"
