You Come From Far Away
Amal Ramsis, 84 min, Documentary, in Arabic/Russian/Spanish, subtitled in English and Arabic, Egypt/ Lebanon/ Spain/ Qatar, 2018

Imagine that you have siblings but you can’t talk to them because you don’t speak the same language. Imagine that you have parents but you were raised without them. The film tells the extraordinary story of a Palestinian family, dispersed by several turmoils that stirred the past century. It is as if the 20th century was summed up in the life of a single family: from the Spanish Civil War in which the father Najati Sidki fought against Franco, to World War II, to the Nakba and then the Lebanese Civil War.

The film has won the Silver Tanit Award at Carthage Film Festival in 2018, Best Film at Al Ard Film Festival, Best Documentary at It was screened at Tétouan Mediterranean International Film Festival, FIPRISCI Award and the African Federation of the Film Critic Award at Ismailia Film Festival and Euro Mediterranean Award for Best Film at Aswan Women Film Festival.

We thank the director Amal Ramsis for her cooperation.
