WE LIKE LIFE TOMORROW


Directed by | Ismail Habbash

Genre documentary  |  Length: 31mins  |  Year of production: 2008


Director Habbash has produced some of the most exciting and original “social cinema” projects in Palestine over the past decade. Working with fiction and documentary, his work has consistently attended to the experiences of ordinary Palestinian people under occupation, offering them access to the video medium and bringing their voices unvarnished to the wider public in Palestine and abroad. In this bold new project, he goes even further, inviting three Palestinian families to document their own daily lives. Having trained and equipped a family in Gaza, one in the rural outskirts of Jenin in the northern West Bank, and another in the cave dwelling regions to the south of Hebron, Habbash edits and assembles three remarkable ten minute portraits and presents us with a composite sketch of daily life for the ordinary people of Palestine, through their own eyes.
