The setting for this work is a minibus filled with actors and film crew on their way to shoot scenes reconstructing the TV series “Young Indiana Jones Chronicles”. The scene includes a meeting held during the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 between Indiana Jones, Laurence of Arabia, the historian Arnold Toynbee, and Gertrude Bell. An additional event is also interwoven within the sequence: a historic argument in 1961 between Arnold Toynbee and Yaakov Herzog, then ambassador of Israel to Canada. This was a watershed moment in the chronicles of Israeli diplomacy and in the ongoing debate about Zionism and the occupation. The work examines the boundaries between historical events and their reconstruction. The film itself serves as a kind of “making of” documentary of reenactment scenes of made-up history.
