PRIVATE INVESTIGATION


Directed by | Ula Tabari

Genre documentary  |  Length: 90mins  |  Year of production: 2002


“All Palestinian kids in Israel used to hold the Israeli flag and sing for Israel in Arabic each year we used to do that, to celebrate – we would prepare dance shows, theatre plays and songs! A lot of decorations and flags went everywhere… and no one said anything. But the next day, which is the official independence day, when all families and friends were supposed to go out on a picnic somewhere or to the beach… my father used to feel sick and we never left the house”
(Statement by director Ula Tabari).

In her insightful and personal debut documentary Tabari intelligently probes the multiple paradoxes and tensions effecting Palestinian identity politics inside pre 1967 Israeli borders.
