Opened by Saliba Khamis, the Freedom Theatre Project was opened as an alternative education system for children on the West Bank, whose regular lives were disrupted by the Israeli occupation.
The theatre group engaged children from Jenin, helping them to express their everyday frustrations, anger, bitterness and fear.
Arna’s son Juliano, director of this film, was also one of the directors of Jenin’s theatre. With his camera, he filmed the children during rehearsal periods from 1989 to 1996. In this film, he goes back to see what happened to them.
Shifting back and forth in time, the film reveals the tragedy and horror of lives trapped by the circumstances of the Israeli occupation.
