On Hold

This  film deals with me and my partner’s decision to leave Israel. It is the  physical and emotional journey of a young Arab couple, who decide that  Israel is not the right place for them, caught between rational  considerations and emotional ones. Our story is intertwined with the  stories of other people, similarly disappointed by this place. All these  stories create a collage of feelings that move between the desire for a  better life and an unexplained love for a homeland that is not a  homeland.

Voices Forward Int'l Film Festival, Canada, 2009; Jerusalem International Film Festival, Isarel, 2007; International Women Film Festival, Rehovot, Israel, 2007; The Other Israel Film Festival, USA, 2007
