Yaron Attar, No Vacance, 2018, video still, 8:30 min.

Two men drive their cars on desolate roads alongside the hills of the Negev desert in the south of Israel. Their journey suspends time, freezing it into a cinematic realm. As the dreamy scene continues, the two cars come together in a severe collision, a rear-ender in which one vehicle merges completely into the other.
