Abu Arab

Palestine 2013
13 min. Arabic with Hebrew and English subtitles

The movie focuses on the third generation of the Nakba and their dilemmas around their Palestinian identity, to the point of fear of losing it. Seventeen year-old Muna Thaher, the granddaughter of Abu-‛Arab, a refugee from Safuriyya, takes us on a voyage in search of the reasons for the split in Palestinian identity and its fragmentation among youths who now define themselves as Israelis. Along the way, Muna recounts the history of her family’s displacement from the village in the Galilee, as bequeathed by her grandfather across the generations.
