Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group presentation + director Q&A

Fadia, a dynamic Palestinian refugee stranded in Lebanon yearns for the ancestral homeland she's denied. She challenges her friend, the director, to find the ancient mulberry tree that stands as witness to her family's existence, guided only by inherited memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon. Spanning fifteen years, this story of a friendship that stays connected across a divided land and a fragmented people, adopts a birds' eye perspective to reflect on freedom of movement, exile and the hope of return.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Director Sarah Beddington
