Les États généraux du film documentaire 2012 Building a Political Point of View? Yamo

Rami Nihawi
2011 - France/Liban - Couleur et Noir & Blanc - 68'

It’s a film about how we choose to live today. A film about how time flies and is also suspended. It’s not a biography of my mother. Nor does it simply document my memories, my house, or my family. Yamo combines these elements to facilitate a dialogue between generations, one that is currently missing. A conversation about dreams, failures, indeed about the present and its relationship to the future. I carry the weight of my generation. I carry the weight of my parents’ failures. I’m scared to become them.
