Bye Bye Tiberias

Milwaukee Film Festival

Years after leaving her Palestinian village to pursue an acting career in France, Hiam Abbass (SUCCESSION) returns home with her daughter, filmmaker Lina Soualem, in this intimate and meditative documentary about four generations of women working hard to mend the seams of multiple separations, forced and chosen. Braiding together old and new family records Abbass shows Soualem a world divided by conflict and colonial interference, still joined however by family, mountains, rivers, and valleys.
