video: drunkard film review

Aida Makoto's, I'm Osama bin Laden, 2005

I've seen it quite recently in Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, where I currently work, at drunkard film review, which was screened for the launch of the bar.

The subject of Makoto Aida’s video is Osama Bin Laden, impersonated by the artist, who's hiding in Japan. He becomes a lazy, sake-drinking old man who, in a drunken stupor, videotapes a message that he has quit being a terrorist and that the U.S. can stop looking for him. Hilarious!
