What exactly was said between April Glaspie and Saddam Hussein?
Why did we never hear anything more about April after that?
What role did CNN play in our perception of the conflict?
Did that war disrupt relations with the Arab world for good?
Willem de Wolf tries in particular to investigate the female and Arab perspectives as opposed to the hyperbole of the white Western perception in his text. Guy Cassiers uses visual technology to reconstruct the traces of media manipulation in footage from 30 years ago. It is up to the spectators to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and draw their own conclusions.
