"Khaled’s Ladder"
May 2019 VC Official Selection

Matteo Lonardi


Logline: Against the backdrop of the US Presidential election, and increasingly anti-immigrant rhetoric coming from Donald Trump and the Republican Party, Palestinian artist, Khaled Jarrar, travels along the US / Mexican border from San Diego / Tijuana to El Paso / Juarez. Along the way, Jarrar explores common concerns and human stories along the border. His journey culminates with the installation of an artwork made from stolen pieces of the US / Mexico border wall, in Juarez, Mexico. Although Jarrar has not given the monument a name, local people call it “Khaled’s Ladder”.
