Fadia's Tree (U)
Dir: Sarah Beddington | UK | 2021 | 86 mins | Partially subtitled
While millions of birds migrate freely in the skies, Fadia, a Palestinian refugee exiled to Lebanon, yearns for the ancestral homeland she is denied. In this striking, deeply poetic and profound documentary, Fadia challenges the film’s director Sarah Beddington to find an ancient mulberry tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence – with only inherited memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon as her guides. Along the way, Sarah meets with ornithologists whose observations on the homing instincts of the birds inadvertently reveal the unresolved problems of the region.
Spanning fifteen years, this moving story of Fadia and Sarah’s friendship gives us a birds’ eye perspective on a divided land and a fragmented people against the backdrop of history, reflecting on the innate human need for freedom, the cruelty of exile and the lasting hope of return.
This film is presented in partnership with the Eastbourne Film Society. The screening on 19 November will include an introduction by Mansel Stimpson, Chair of EFS.
