The video above is a documentation of a 16mm film projection. It is shown in video for preview purposes only. In the coming months, families will start moving into the first houses in the new Palestinian city Rawabi, north of Ramallah, which is planned to be the home of 40,000 people. Endurance, my new 16mm film, is based on the measurement of space in Rawabi’s model apartment, and was made without using a camera. It shows greyscale rectangles representing doors, windows and furniture abstracted from the architectural plan. Every shot represents the length of one wall, using the formula 1 meter=5.4 seconds, when shooting 16mm film at 24fps. In that sense, the duration of the whole film equals the total length of the apartment and can potentially surround the whole living space. 
As technology advances media forward and closer to the viewer, I feel it’s urgent to counter that with the use of 16mm film. This feeling does not stem from a nostalgic sentiment or fascination with the unique descriptive qualities of celluloid but rather from the belief that only the cinematic apparatus can embody such interesting relation of space and time. 
Endurance is a severe consideration of the space of filming and the duration of viewing.
