Synopsis
Visual essay exploring the relationship between the concept of ‘homeland’ and the creation of a nation state in Palestine-Israel. Using home movies, archive film and current footage of contemporary Israel, Adam Kossoff’s film asks questions of history, loss and the manner in which cinema has been used as a tool of propaganda and expropriation.
