Flash player and headphones needed

In work of Zohar Kfir Execute the viewer turned to accomplice - or objector in a process of execution. The execution process, probably recorded from TV, split to several movies presented in chronological order. An interactive video, a linear narrative, divided in simple and direct way, places the spectator in a dilemma: to become an executioner or to stop the execution in a virtual way. User becomes responsible, in the linear path of restructured and unavoidable execution. Simple interaction endows the "PLAY" button with a new signification of aesthetic, human and political responsibility.
