FIX ME


Directed by | Raed Andoni

Genre documentary  |  Length: 89mins  |  Year of production: 2009


Raed Andoni has a tension headache—one that has lasted generations and isn't going to end soon. That's because Andoni is a Palestinian living in the Ramallah, where the prospects for a stressfree life are elusive. Fix Me follows Andoni through 20 therapy sessions as he tries to cure his unwelcome condition. The internal terrain of displacement and alienation that is revealed to his therapist and through his daily encounters with friends and family mimics the lived reality of thousands of Palestinians who are themselves displaced from their history and homeland. Ironic in tone, stylishly shot, and with a haunting score, Fix Me deftly plays with the concept of detachment from every angle. In Andoni’s hands, life under occupation is rendered with sly humour and an unexpectedly light touch, culminating in a poignant statement about the universal longing for a way back home.
