Featuring in Alfilm - Arab Film Festival Berlin (2015)

This video presents a figure illustrating my aunt’s character by imitating her voice and gestures. Via the audible script of the imitating voice of my aunt telling stories about her sentiments and relationships to objects she owns in her house, the video tries to reveal social (and personal) issues of a certain generation (1950s/­60s) of the Palestinians living within the occupied territories from 1948. Issues that have generated "peculiar" characteristic phenomena of the nowadays situation.
