Summary
My Home, My Prison is an uplifting and informative documentary based on the autobiography of Palestinian peace activist and journalist, Raymonda Hawa Tawil. Set against the backdrop of the last 50 years of Israeli-Palestinian conflict; the film is a tale of an uprooted nation seen through one woman's eyes. It breaks the definitions of traditional documentary and narrative by interweaving documentary footage shot in Israel and the West Bank and Gaza Strip, archival footage and dramatized reenactments of scenes from Tawil's life. The directors of this impressive film are both Jewish women, proud of their heritage and its tradition of fighting for social justice. My Home, My Prison premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the Documentary Competition and it is narrated by Martin Sheen and Gail Golden. The problem of peace and justice in the Middle East is viewed anew through a feminist lens. Interviews with Tawil and other Palestinians from universities to refugee camps add nuance and depth to our understanding of the conflict. - Judith Tucker, Associate Professor of History, Georgetown University A film which will move hearts into a new history where justice will rise into life-saving focus and where tears will fall like holy water onto a bloody landscape. - June Jordan, poet
