Counterpoint is a video inspired by a poem by Mahmoud Darwisch paying tribute to his friend Edward Said after his death. Darwish is making Said speak in the poem. The video shows a representation of Edward Said through Darwish's poem : two faces of one man such as bright spots scattered across dark space, one on the right , the other on the left, one speaks in Arabic, the other in English, both languages overlap. The two faces float slowly in the dark to meet eachother, they meet in the middle and die out.
