Directed by Mats Grorud (France/Sweden/Norway, 2018, 74 min.). Digital.

This beautifully animated film tells the story of Wardi, an 11-year-old Palestinian girl who lives with her family in the Lebanese refugee camp where she was born. Her beloved great-grandfather, "Sidi," was one of the first people to settle in the camp after being exiled from his home and homeland, Palestine, in 1948. When Sidi gives Wardi the key to his old house back in the Galilee, she fears he may have lost hope of someday returning home. As she searches for Sidi's lost hope around the camp, she collects her family's testimonies, from one generation to the next.

Co-presented with Boston Palestine Film Festival.
