Two Houses and a Longing

Dorit Naaman

2008, 12:00 minutes, colour, English


This video tells the story of two Palestinian homes whose owners fled during the 1948 war and the houses now serve a museum and a daycare centre. The video tackles the question of the right of return of Palestinian refugees, the workings of public and private memory and erasure, and the unearthing of these two houses' stories by the Israeli videomaker.
Recipient of the Ir-Amim " A Moment in Jerusalem" production grant, and group screening at eh Jerusalem Film Festival, July 2008.
