Bye Bye Tiberias (PG)

Bye Bye Tiberias

Bye Bye Tibériade


Years after leaving her Palestinian village to pursue an acting career in France, Hiam Abbass returns home with her daughter, in this intimate documentary about four generations of women and their shared legacy of separation.


By telling their story, director Abbass hopes to reclaim and question the personal, historical and visual legacies she inherited and to answer the question “How does a woman find her place when caught between worlds”? A question that applies equally to her and her mother. If there is any one takeaway from the film, it’s the importance of family attachments and the succour they provide. After its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, the essay film, with its mix of the personal and the political, has been a festival favourite, going on to win the Grierson award for best documentary in London and the jury prize ex aequo in Marrakech. It represented Palestine in the Oscar international feature competition. (Subtitles)
