YOUR FATHER WAS BORN 100 YEARS OLD, AND SO WAS THE NAKBA

Cinema

23/04/2024 à 19:00

A Palestinian grandmother returns to her hometown Haifa through Google Streetview, today, the only way she can see Palestine. 

 

A ghostly voice echoes: the disembodied, imaginary voice of the filmmaker's grandmother, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon who was never able to return to her hometown. Her words haunt Google Street View images of Haifa, the only means she could have had of visiting her lost home. But 50 years after the "great catastrophe", the streets are no longer recognizable. The old woman's soul wanders in vain through cyberspace in search of her house, probably demolished after the Nakba, and for her son Ameen, imagined as a little boy from another time. Over the images, which distort and pixilate as the network connection cuts in and out, are superimposed images of the trauma of forced relocation. Razan AlSalah pays heartbreaking tribute to the first generation of refugees.
