Reflections from Palestine during covid-19

Reflections From Palestine is a collection of voices from Palestinian filmmakers on exceptional experiences and a testimony of a particular time that simultaneously speaks to a feeling understood worldwide. The films display personal film languages and reach out to collective stories expressing Palestine's diversity and a broad span of emotions: from boredom to enjoyment, anger, fear, confusion, and complexities of quarantine days.

What started as an intimate journey of observation and reflection is not only a metaphor and snapshot of a time shaped by COVID- 19 but turned out to be an artistic visual representation and interpretation of a further escalation of the political situation in Palestine.
