Title: First Homes
Short Summary: The First Houses film monitors and records the oral history of four Palestinian personalities, each a leading figure in their fields now. The four figures – who suffered the 1948 calamity – come from northern, southern and central Palestine.
The film aims at introducing the world to Palestine before, a lively place inhabited by people with a history, heritage, culture and civilisation. The film seeks to convey this image through a review of the childhood of the characters in their cities and villages.
