The Color of Olives
Carolina Rivas & Daoud Sarhandi | Palestine | 2007 | 97 min | Arabic
Introduced by Daoud Sarhandi
Like many Palestinian families, the Amers live surrounded by the Separation Wall. Their daily lives are dominated by electrified fences, locks and a constant swarm of armed soldiers. Through a sensitive lens we discover the private world of all eight members of the family. As their dramas unfold we catch a glimpse of their constant struggles and the small, endearing details that sustain them, including school friends, olive trees and two small donkeys. The story of the Amer family offers its audience an opportunity to reflect on the effects of racial segregation, meaning of borders and the absurdity of war, and reveals the unknown life of the Palestinian people.
