Moving from one hotel in Bethlehem to another in East Jerusalem, the filmmaker encounters a series of problems involving a ceiling, a video camera and the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Dirty Pictures is the seventh episode in the Hotel Diaries series. Made over six years in the hotels of six different countries, the works in the series relate personal experiences to contemporary conflicts in the Middle East. Playing upon chance and co-incidence, hotel rooms are employed as 'found' film sets, where the architecture, furnishing and decoration become the means by which the filmmaker’s small adventures are linked to major world events. Other works in the series include Frozen War (Ireland, 2001), Museum Piece (Germany, 2004), Throwing Stones (Switzerland, 2004, B & B (England, 2005), Pyramids/Skunk (Netherlands 2006/7) and Six Years Later (Ireland 2007).
