DHIL AL GHEYAB (SHADOW OF ABSENCE)
This film explores the anxiety that Palestinians are experiencing, especially those uprooted from their land. It seeks to express the duality of life and death, homeland and exile, in Palestinian identity. Shot in many countries, including Lebanon, Syria and the UK, it talks about leading political and cultural figures, and ordinary Palestinians, subjected to massacres from 1948 until today.
