PALESTINE IN THE SOUTH

 Documentary, 2011

 

pas video

 

After Saddam Hussein’s fall, thousands of Palestinians who lived in Iraq have become refugees in no-man’s land. The faraway republic of Chile has welcomed a group of them to La Calera, a small city in which hundreds of Palestinians and their descendants have made their home for the past century.

The journey continues, just like 100 years ago.

Basem, a Palestinian who has just arrived with his wife and small daughter, faces his new country with enthusiasm, innocence, and hope. He yearns for a home in this unknown and seductive world thousands of kilometers from his homeland.

In his new country, Basem recovers his trade as a baker and sets up his own business. He hopes that his effort and the support of the large community of Palestinian descendants will help him to make his dream come true: to bring his elderly parents to live with them once more.
