The Place That Is Ours - Zena Agha & Dorothy Allen-Pickard
Tuesday 13 September 2022, by ,
We interviewed the duo for the Clermont-Ferrand International Film Festival, as part of the Brasserie Du Court.
A daughter returns to her father’s village in Palestine, which was destroyed in 1948. She journeys through unfamiliar landscapes and is confronted with the reality of her own exile.
The film is a moving, experimental and exhaustively researched journey into the displacement and lack of rootedness faced by Palestinians worldwide. It’s an impressive first effort from the two emerging directors.
The film was also selected as part of Emerging Filmmakers Night’s September 2022 edition.
