PALESTINE IN THE SOUTH
Directed by | Ana Maria Hurtado
Genre documentary | Length: 52mins | Year of production: 2011
Following the fall of Saddam Hussein, thousands of Palestinian refugees living in Iraq were displaced again into a no man's land on the Syrian border. After years in this new found limbo, some ultimately journeyed with their families to Chile, where they were offered residence. Ana Maria Hurtado’s Palestine in the South follows one such group as they reach Chile and are welcomed to a small town with a Palestinian population descended from migrants arriving a century earlier. For all the hospitality of the town, opportunities are scant and disillusionment sets in amongst some new arrivals.
