Abstract:

This film concerns the relationship between Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land, as experienced by one middle-class Arab Christian family in Nazareth from the Arab-Israeli war of 1948 through the present. It is life played as a deadpan farce, one in which all parties repeat the same gestures to the point of meaninglessness. Suleiman looks through the conflict to human reality, and finds in the story of his own family's disintegration the universal pathos and tragedy of the parent-child relationship. And the tragedy that the gorgeous days and clear nights will be the same in this beautiful country no matter who lives and who dies, or whichever tribe is in control.
