A relapse and recurrence of a tunnel with no way out. Once the war arrives, it never leaves. It always remains in the memories within people, leaving indelible traces. This audiovisual experiment is a visual discourse about war and its outcomes and collateral damage. It renders the rawness of war as a palindromic movement underlying what it takes to be “safe and secure” in our civilisation.
