Albums de famille
( Maoussem Hissad )

Nassim Amaouche, Maïs Darwazeh, Erige Sehiri, Sameh Zoabi
2012 - 82 min - HD - Couleur - Palestine, France

Questioning the Poet’s sentence about identity and transmission, four filmmakers draw up a sensitive portrait of the Arab world, driven by their own concerns, composed by their daily and intimate life, in four different places.
In Kabylia, Nassim Amaouche digs with his father in the rubble of the family home bombed in 1957 searching for his father’s lost childhood or a new start between both men.
Erige Sehiri too, must rediscover her father. It seems that the Tunisian revolution and his new addiction to Facebook drived him away. He even left his family and went back to his small Tunisian village.
In the case of Ahmad, Sameh Zoabi’s childhood friend, Facebook doesn’t measure up. This handsome 35 years old guy is still single, a quite problematic situation in this Palestinian village of northern Israel . As his mother gave up to find him a wife, Sameh decides to take it over.
Mais Darwazeh also lives alone. In Amman, a city of uprooted people, she builds her own identity by gathering around her table close friends, chosen ingredients, and old recipies.
