Once I Entered a Garden

A moving and personal take on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict from Israel’s foremost documentarian.

A wry, playful reflection on the emotional consequences of a political situation, centred around a revealing series of intimate conversations between the Israeli filmmaker and his Palestinian ex-Arabic teacher and longtime friend. An exchange of shared and separate histories, perfectly underscored by and intercut with achingly beautiful letters to a love lost across the divide, read by a woman over evocative super-8 footage of modern-day Beirut.
