Leila is a Lebanese student living in London organising a photography exhibition of women in political conflict. Through time-travelling sequences from the 1900s to the 1980s she traverses both real and imaginary landscapes of Lebanon and Palestine. A film that reveals a nearly forgotten past from a feminist perspective, John Akomfrah wrote that the film “weaves a rich tableau of history, folklore, myth and archival material.” On the 40th anniversary of its production we present a restoration of this groundbreaking film.

Weaving history and folklore to create a testament to Palestinian women.
