Work Overview

Mordechai Vanunu was a nuclear technician who revealed that Israel was developing an offensive nuclear capability, unknown to the rest of the world and unknown to the population of Israel itself. For his trouble he was kidnapped by Israel's secret service and sentenced to 18 years in prison and as far as we know is currently in his 7th year of solitary confinement. So Vanunu maps out the fatal journey of its subject. It's a journey across physical and psychic terrains, and across geographic and cultural sites, from North Africa to Israel, South East Asia to Australia. Underlying all this shifting scenery is Vanunu's vacillation over the choice to act, over the polarities of his Arab and Jewish identity, his rejection of Judaism and adoption of Christianity and the significance of its tenets underscoring his decision to bear witness.
