In a film both personal and political, Palestinian-born Mona Hatoum portrays the reunion of a mother and daughter in war-torn Lebanon during 1981. Combining letters read in voice-over and images of the harsh reality of war, the film connects the need for family reconciliation to the need to end conflict in the Middle East. This work has been featured at the London Film Festival, the AFI National Video Festival, and the Montreal Women's Film and Video Festival. ~ Carrie Downes, Rovi
