Directed by | Ayreen Anastas & Rene Gabri

Genre documentary  |  Length: 118mins  |  Year of production: 2006

In the spring of 2006, Ayreen Anastas (Pasolini Pa* Palestine) and Rene Gabri travelled to Palestine/Israel, searching, researching, and witnessing circumstances in the country. They created a series of videos that document their encounters with people struggling, resisting, surviving, suffering and living everyday lives. They meet a geographer, a professor, an activist, a former detainee, an architect, bedouin. What Everybody Knows is an attempt to think about the question of Palestine and articulate it through the experiences that these characters offer. The video moves between documentary and experimental structures, and covers an immense political and geographical expanse as it brings these living testimonials together in an epic journey into the core of the Palestinian experience in Israel/Palestine today.
