It’s Friday night and I’m just about to go out to dinner with my friends. To warm up, I watched this video by Larissa Sansour. Called Soup Over Bethlehem, it’s a 9-minute piece about a group of friends having dinner in Bethlehem. They start out by talking about a Palestinian national dish, mloukhieh, and the conversation evolves into politics, mobility and occupation.
My favorite line of the video: ‘I’m so occupied these days.’ Response, ‘Aren’t we all.’
