I photographed 200 street signs for this video project, and asked people

Last Checkpoint, video, 2001, 10 mins.
In February 2001 Dominic Ryan and cameraman Harrie Haebets from Amsterdam
went into the West Bank of Israel or the occupied territories of Palestine,
to erect on the green line in the besieged town of Qalqilya two humanitarian
billboards and organise a meeting between the governor of Qalqilya and
two knesset members. A ceremony was to be organised and a declaration
of conflict resolution was to be exchanged across the no-man's land
where both sides were congregating. The day before the ceremony, a bus
driver from Gaza drove into the 12 IDF soldiers at a bus stop and killed
them. The governor cancelled the event. This is an extract from this
True Fiction movie - the city inn check point where the cameraman is
gassed and shot in the middle of no-man's land.
