• Omer  Fast, Continuity, 2012

The work “Continuity” (which also means a comprehensive script) was shown at one of the most prestigious contemporary art exhibitions in recent years— dOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel (2012). It tells of a young German soldier’s “return” from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. His parents meet him at the station and drive him home, where they have a meal and try to talk. The film shows three versions of the same situation, each with a different actor playing the son coming back from the war, and revealing on many levels how modern Western society is unable to cope with the experience of wars they have become involved in. It is also a very interesting experiment in form, in which realism intermingles smoothly with thriller-style aesthetics.
