Ard N°8 - Gaëtan Soerensen


Ard N°8 (the garden n°8 in arabic) is an extract from the documentary work ‘’Waqf’’ by Gaëtan Soerensen. Initiated in 2017 and completed in 2022. During 5 years, Gaëtan Soerensen went several times to the West Bank to find and document a piece of land, in the heart of Nablus, belonging to a family exiled after the Six Day War in 1967.
The members of this exiled family, the Fakhreddine, unable to see their land again, point out that this land is under the legal status of a cadastral act: the waqf.
