On Home Loss

We present you in this collection with documentaries raising indispensable questions on home loss, preserving memories and reconstructing identities. What happens when one is forced to leave their home and everything they belonged to behind? What does it mean to live in exile or a war that constantly changes features and never ends? What does it mean to care for a family in such a situation? Which values do you teach your children then? Seven filmmakers from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Tunisia, Algeria and Iraq are tackling these questions in their own creative style, and we invite you to explore their significance. Enjoy watching and share your thoughts.
