is the story of what happens when
ordinary people get caught up in the
extraordinary circumstances of war. Told
by two generations of director Tariq Nasir’s
family members, belonging recounts the deep-rooted
attachment to one’s land, the loss of an ancestral home,
and the experience of becoming refugees.
The wars of 1948 and 1967 changed the lives of Palestinian families like
the Nasir’s forever – yet this is not a story of blame and
bitterness, but a
human story, one of displacement and loss; a story of longing and belonging.
