Mahmoud Darwich: As the Land is the Language
Directed by: Simone Bittone
(60 mins) This film, which follows Darwich from the Cisjordanian desert to Paris via Cairo and Beirut, tracing the path of his exile from Israel, sets out to understand this popular fervor and share the emotion distilled by Darwich's words and inimitable rhythm. It not only allows the viewer to appreciate his work in its totality, but also places it in a political, historical and cultural context.
In English and Arabic with English subtitles.
