Erase and Forget (2017, 86mins)
by Andrea Luka Zimmerman

Goethe-Institut Ramallah is especially hosting the well-known filmmaker Andrea Luka Zimmerman to show her film Erase and Forget with a chance for a Q&A in the end with her personally on 24 of March.

Charting ‘the deep bonds between Hollywood’s fictionalized conflicts and America’s hidden wars’, Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s ERASE AND FORGET is a new investigative documentary which charts the extraordinary life and times of Bo Gritz, one of America’s highest decorated veterans and the ‘inspiration’ for Rambo and Brando’s Colonel Kurtz.

Using never before seen archive footage of covert US operations, and interviews filmed over a ten year period, ERASE AND FORGET provides a complex perspective of an individual and a country in crisis.

ERASE AND FORGET is a compelling inquiry into the nature of human conscience which raises urgent questions about US militarism and gun control, and embodies contemporary American society in all its dizzying complexity and contradictions.

…like a Lynchian nightmare of right-wing America. ​

This screening aims to question conventional ways of seeing in the visual culture of Palestine. It is organised as part of the “Out of Sight” project, facilitated and curated by Adania Shibli, and is held in the context of Ramallah Doc 2019. The activities of the project will run for a week, during which a series of international films will be screened for the first time in Palestine, from the 18th until the 24th of March.

The Ramallah Doc project, in partnership with A.M. Qattan Foundation, Film Lab, Goethe Institut and the French Institute in Jerusalem, aims to support Palestinian documentary filmmakers by providing them with the opportunity to present and pitch their documentaries to a forum of international film producers and TV representatives.
