"Two meters of this land are enough for me" wrote the Palestinian nationalist poet Mahmud Darwisch in a poem about the moment of his passing. He died in 2008. Close by his grave in Ramallah, a music festival is organized. Hours before the show, technicians, artists and journalists come together, a sound check is done, scaffolding erected, interviews are conducted. What seems to be just a casual documentary observation is in fact staged, right down to the tiniest detail. The film sets a counterpoint to the mostly dramatic media image of Palestine – and thus makes the conflict more precisely visible.
