Family dinamics and end-of-life discussions
8 November 2018 | by shoshanaanistonSee all my reviews

This is an important documentary about an Arab Israeli family, with Bedouin heritage from the father's side. It is very interesting how the children feel closer to the Jewish population of Israel than to the Arab, because they grew up in a mainly Jewish town, and not in there father's Bedouin hometown. The film also explores the importance of end-of-life discussions, namely the problem regarding the mother's burial. It is truly remarkable how openly the family can talk about what the mother wants when she will die. It is a movie worth seeing, because one can learn a lot about different cultures living together and effecting each others' lives and deaths.
