a house in jerusalem

31 May – 6 June, 2024

The screening on Saturday 1 June at 5.40pm will be followed by a Zoom Q&A with director Muayad Alayan.

After her mother dies in an accident, grieving Rebecca (Miley Locke) and her father (Johnny Harris) move from England to Jerusalem in a bid to make a fresh start. Their old family home in the Valley of the Ghosts becomes the setting for mysterious events and an unlikely friendship between Rebecca and Rasha, a young Palestinian girl only she can see.

Could it be that the walls of the house are infused with the history and emotions of past generations, or is Rasha simply a figment of Rebecca’s imagination? As Rebecca delves deeper into the secrets of the house, she discovers Rasha’s true identity and the shared grief that binds them. This poignant tale explores memory, trauma, and the longing for home amidst the complexities of relations between Israel and Palestine.

English, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.
