On September 11, 1989 my father died. 
I can’t remember where I was that day.
22 Years later I am in a hotel room in Kuwait City.
From the balcony of my room I watch a man embrace a woman by the poolside.
In the room next door an American girl is talking on the telephone.
I order room service and I film the chambermaid as she makes the bed.
This transitory place, this hotel which I have discovered far from home,
is the last place my father stayed that I know of…
