"EARTHMOVERS"
2020, Video Still, Digital, 06:34

A film essay reflecting on progress, urban development and the dispossession of commons through the lens of extractive violence.

Taking the event of the brutal demolition of the National Theatre of Tirana and using the bulldozer as a primary object of inquiry, this film essay further reflects how under the grand narrative of (western constructed notion of) modernity, colonial definitions and practices are still implemented and domesticized in the exploitation of commons.
