Your Father Was Born 100 Years Old,

and So Was the Nakba

by Razan AlSalah

"For its poetic, multi-layered, and exquisite execution both linguistically, and aesthetically a film which at once gives insight into a highly personal experience as well as a universal disposition of loss, injustice and distance..."
Emily Jacir, Serge AbiAad, Rebecca Cremona, Jury statement - Sunbird Award for Best Narrative Short, Days of Cinema, Palestine, 2017

This doc-fiction is a (re)construction, a (re)collection of the memory of returning to Haifa. It is an imaginary memory of retuning to Haifa. Razan AlSalah is imagining her grandmother was able to return to Haifa when she was still alive, through Google Streetview, which today is the only way she could see Palestine, the only way Razan can see Palestine.

She looks down at her virtual ghost marked with an X. "If I were walking, I would have found it, even if it's not here anymore." Oum Amin, a Palestinian grandmother returns to her hometown Haifa through Google Maps Streetview, today, the only way she can see Palestine.
