Review of “Twerk for Yemen” (2023)

Moving picture, 10 minutes

Seen in 2023.

Director Tanja Holm walks around urgently asking people on the street how to stop the Yemeni Civil War. She’s nowhere near Yemen.

A deliberate exercise in cringe-inducing moral superiority. The GIFF 2023 catalogue refers to Lena Nyman of I Am Curious (Yellow) (1967); this is indeed similarly fearless.
