MY PALESTINE


Directed by | Dima Abu Ghoush

Genre documentary  |  Length: 10mins  |  Year of production: 2007


From the artist’s statement:

“’What does 'Palestine' mean to you?’ The question sounded simple, even naive at the beginning. But after this journey into peoples' minds, hearts, and memories, searching for the true meaning of Palestine, it no longer sounded so simple.”

Abu Ghosh’s short consists of a mental and emotional search for what constitutes individuals’ understandings of their homeland Palestine, while statehood, borders, sovereignty and the other markers of a recognized national space remain absent.
