Village Under the Forest, The

Synopsis
Unfolding as a personal meditation from the Jewish Diaspora, this programme explores the hidden remains of the destroyed Palestinian village of Lubya, which lies under a purposely cultivated forest plantation called South Africa Forest.

Using the forest and the village ruins as metaphors, it explores themes related to erasure and persistence of memory and dares to imagine a future in which dignity , acknowledgement and co-habitation become shared possibilities in Israel/Palestine.
