With introductory and concluding statements by Edward Said, this careful study in oral history is far more than a handful of reminiscences. This video documents the collective nature of the stories from 1948 Palestinian survivors. It describes their daily life before the war, their flight from the conflict and their lives in exile.

Collecting Stories From Exile seamlessly weaves together interviews from the 1948 survivors with scenes demonstrating the process of oral history.
