SYNOPSIS

Behind the “sensitive content”, behind this symbol of the crossed out eyes, in this Deep Blur, two real eyes have been erased by the violence in the Middle East. This Deep Blur video is about the eyewitnesses who don’t look away, who stay there, with their fainting eyes and their trembling hands, recording the “sensitive content.” They are risking their lives, fighting for visibility. But to what extent we in the West should deepen ourselves over these symbolic eyes, or consciously choose “hide Visibility”!
