Kingdom of Fear

In July 2004 I met Mordechai Vanunu. I filmed him recite his poem, I am Your Spy.

At the time, he was under house arrest in east Jerusalem.

He had just been released from prison after serving 18 years, 11 in solitary confinement.

Imprisoned in 1986 for revealing Israel's secret  Nuclear weapons programme, to the British press. 

I smuggled the video tape back to the UK, concealing it in a customised copy of Hunter S Thompson´s, Kingdom of Fear

See video here.

In May 2010, Vanunu was arrested and sentenced to three months in jail on a charge that he met foreigners in violation of conditions of his 2004 release from jail.
