DISPLACED LIVES


Directed by | Joăo Marcelo Gomes

Genre documentary  |  Length: 14mins  |  Year of production: 2010


Joăo Marcelo Gomes’s short doc Displaced Lives (Vidas Deslocadas) is a tender portrait of Faez Abbas and Salha Nasser, an elderly couple and two of some 4,000 Palestinians in all for whom the 2003 Iraq war led to further displacement and Brazil. Having lived for four years in the Al–Ruweyshed Refugee Camp, in no–man’s–land between Iraq and Jordan, Abbas and Nasser must now adapt to a new language and culture in yet another country that’s not their own.
