Abu Dhabi IFF 2010: Winner 'Black Pearl' - Best Documentary
HOMELAND is the fourth in a series about two Palestinian families which Sluizer followed since 1974:
'Land of the Fathers' (1974), 'A Reason To Go' (1977) and 'Adios Beirut' (1983).
HOMELAND is a very personal film about the director’s motivation to support the Palestinian cause and his relationship with the members of the two families who – over the years – became very dear to him. They are now living indifferent places all over the world, unable to return to their homeland.
Homeland is also a historical saga about the Palestinian people and their struggle for their land and dignity.
