Write Down, I Am An Arab | Directed by Ibtisam Mara'ana Menuhin | 1 hour and 13 min. Feature Documentary | Israel/Palestinian Territories, 2014. East Coast premiere. 

A story about Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish. His writing shaped Palestinian identity and helped galvanize generations of Palestinians to their cause. Born in the Galilee, Darwish’s family fled during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and returned a few years later to a ruined homeland. These early experiences would provide the foundation for a writing career that would come to define an entire nation.

Screens After:

Living in a war zone, 10 year old Sami is forced to take decisions beyond his understanding; decisions that could deprive him of his childhood and change his life forever.
