Citizen in the Making
Video, 5'59", 2015
In Citizen in the Making, an Israeli-Jewish man, in his 20s, tells about a strange meeting he had with a beautiful Belgian nurse in front of a doctors clinic in Belgium. That morning, he came to the clinic for a surgery to circumcise himself in non religious manner. Arrogant and self confident, the young man seems to focus on the actions and figure of speech of the nurse who undermined him not mentioning the purpose of his visit to the doctor.
