Testimonies and film screening “Stranger in my home” by director Sahira Derbas
In this symposium, live testimonies of Palestinians who tell stories of their displacement which turned them into refugees in their own city.
These testimonies are preceded by the screening of the film Stranger in My Home – Jerusalem (2007) – Director Sahera Dirbas, a 37-minute, with English subtitles.
The documentary is based on oral history. The Director recounts the stories of eight Palestinian families who, 40 years later, memorize the events that took place during the 1967 war. Each family goes to see its home, occupied in 1948, in the neighborhoods of Baqa’a, Talbiya, Qatamoun and Musrara. Some families enter their homes and hold a discussion with the occupiers who have taken over their homes.
