Imagine having siblings you cannot talk to because you don’t speak the same language. Imagine having parents but you were raised without them. This film tells the extraordinary story of a Palestinian family that was dispersed by several tumultuous events marking the last century: from the Spanish Civil War in which father Najati Sidki fought against Franco and fascism, to World War II, the Nakba and the Lebanese Civil War. The film is in Arabic, Russian, English and Spanish with English and Arabic Subtitles. A discussion will take place following the screening with director Amal Ramsis.
