"In subtle, pivotal moments, people reveal that the journey of Palestinian struggle leads to the heart...The artistic effect reinforces what the people express in words and the aesthetic creation is flawless." --Scoop Magazine
Set during the current Intifada, this documentary follows four Palestinian families living in Dheisheh Refugee Camp near Bethlehem.
Fadi is 13 and cares for his 4 younger brothers, the Hammashes are a close-knit family who pass on the lessons of life with humor and passion, Sana is a single woman who endures long commutes to do community work, and Emad and Hanan are a young couple trying to shield their daughter from the harsh realities of the occupation. They talk about their past and discuss the future with humor, sorrow, frustration and hope.
Until When paints an intimate in-depth portrait of Palestinian lives today.
"Remaining unashamedly Palestinian and independent in its point of view, this is a valuable and honest documentary offering great insights by way of interviews, archival photographs, and cinematography which presents a vivid sense of place and daily life." Vancouver Int'l Film Festival
