Near Far (Qorbeh Ghorbe)

Near Far

Near Far is a six-part documentary series focusing on the Y and X generations of the 1948 Palestinians. We follow seven charismatic and opinionated young people, who are debating about where to live: should they stay where they grew up, move to a mixed city or one with a Jewish majority, or return home? The stories we follow encompass the most pressing social and political issues of the Arab society in Israel today: discrimination in building and planning, challenges of education and work, violence, participation in local and national politics and the constant quest for personal expression and freedom in a tightly-knit and quite traditional society.
