Directed by | Mohammed Bakri

Genre documentary  |  Length: 60mins  |  Year of production: 2005

In his autobiographical essay, PalestinianIsraeli actor Bakri returns to the grave of his former mentor, the writer and communist Emile Habibi, and attempts (using archive footage, personal films, and documentary materials) to account for the personal and political transformations that have occurred in Israel/Palestine as well as within his own thinking since the author's death. This is a powerful work by one of the most prominent Palestinian citizens of Israel, whose turbulent relationship with the state and zionist culture as artist and individual is inescapably linked to his political thinking.
