Debris (Radm)



Arabic with English subtitles A Palestinian family’s land, once covered with olive trees and crops, has been bulldozed by Israeli forces. Debris is not simply the story of a farmer whose house is bulldozed and whose farm is destroyed. Debris is a fantasy… of dreams to fly far away in order to touch the sky, to break out of the despair of reality. Debris is the story of an entire generation who inherited humiliation and ignominy.
