Guardian of Memory is a documentary film featuring Tarek Bakri, a Palestinian researcher who works to connect Palestinians in the diaspora with their homeland through his project “We Were and We Are Still Here”. He helps the families return to their land, many for the first time, then uses social media to share the stories and images online. He also records details about each family’s relationship to their land to preserve their histories and to keep the Palestinian memory alive. Director Sawsan Qaoud and Tarek AlBakri will be present at the screening. The film is produced by Aljazeera Documentary.
