HOLDUP is a computer animation made with six images from a short sequence of surveillance camera footage of a bank robbery. Using this footage, Gal constructed a motion picture that simulates the experience of looking through a kaleidoscope. The footage of the bank robbery is only visible at a point in the film when the film rewinds itself. By looking at a hypnotic or psychedelic image and shifting to a position of soberness and control, the role of the viewer changes from that of an innocent bystander to a witness.
