Description

Winner - Grierson Award, London Film Festival, 2023

A special mother and daughter story spanning generations and continents, screening again in time for Mothers’ Day.

In her early 20s, Hiam Abbass (Succession, Blade Runner 2049) left her native Palestinian village to follow her dream of becoming an actress in Europe, leaving behind her mother, grandmother and seven sisters. Thirty years later, her filmmaker daughter Lina returns with her to the village and questions for the first time her mother’s bold choices, her chosen exile and the way the women in their family influenced both their lives.

Set between past and present, Bye Bye Tiberias pieces together images of today, family footage from the nineties and historical archives to portray four generations of daring Palestinian women who keep their story and legacy alive through the strength of their bonds, despite exile, dispossession and heartbreak.

In French and Arabic with English subtitles.
