Samouni Road

Italy, France 2018 | 128 minutes | Arabic | Hebrew, English subtitles

In the rural outskirts of Gaza City a small community of farmers, the Samouni extended family, is about to celebrate a wedding. It’s going to be the first celebration since the latest war. Amal, Fuad, their brothers, and cousins have lost their parents, their houses, and their olive trees. The neighborhood where they live is being rebuilt. As they replant trees and plow fields, they face their most difficult task: piecing together their own memories. Through these young survivors’ recollections, Samouni Road conveys a deep, multifaceted portrait of a family before, during, and after the tragic event that changed its life forever. Winner of the Golden Eye (Best Documentary) Award at the Cannes Film Festival.
