But Tarek moves beyond them and politics and just wants to get back home on ajourney full of adventure, love, humor, and the desire to be free. “Cinematic poetry…beautiful, groundbreaking and deeply, deeply moving," The Huffington Post.
Nation Estate by Larissa Sansour (Palestine/Denmark 2012, 9 min.). A sci-fi short offering a clinically dystopian, yet humorous approach to the deadlock in the Middle East.
