Egypt - Netherlands / 2005 / single channel video / DV-pal, 4:3, colour, stereo / 6'47''
The amount of surveillance in Egypt has increased since the military intervention of the USA in Iraq in 2003. Tourist-Terrorist is a short video about the presence of military police, traffic police and safeguards in the streets of Cairo and my obsession to film them. During the filming proces I slowly became paranoid. When my plane left for the Netherlands I was happy to leave the country... with the tapes.
