Nabila Irshaid

Travel Agency



This short film – made up of Super-8 footage of a family visit to Palestine, shot by the director’s father in the 70´s – looks at a world already lost. By revisiting and reformulating these images as a tourist advertisement, an new image of Palestine emerges – one that may be the fiction of nostalgia, or one which tells the truth of loss through the absurdities of commercial language.
