Sight Lines (temporary title; the finished work was eventually called A Dangerous Film, 2019) is a film essay using archival footage of the Lehi, a paramilitary organization founded in Tel Aviv in August 1940 with the aim of expelling British troops from Palestine and establishing a Jewish state based on nationalistic principles. The footage, which suffered severe cellulose nitrate decomposition that make it brittle, discolored, and highly unstable, provides the grounds for research regarding these historic events and their meanings. Thesdamages mark the passage of 70 years since the images were made and cast a poetic point of view on the violent images. A new musical score for a flute and a string quintet was composed and recorded by Guy Sternberg.
