“Encounter with a Lost Land” (62 min.), author Maryse Gargour. The film was made in Lebanon and France in 2013.
Jaffa, a Mediterranean port and one of the oldest cities in the world, is a place where people of many cultures and religions lived together. Through an artful montage of personal letters, diplomatic archives, consular correspondence, audio-visual footage, newspapers and interviews with the children of French diplomats and doctors who lived in Jaffa, filmmaker Maryse Gargour takes us on an encounter with a lost land – Palestine from 1928 to 1952. Archival materials and first-hand testimonies paint a picture of life in Jaffa at a fateful time in the history of the country.
Movie is in French with English subtitles.
Screening of a movie will take place on Monday, 28 November at 6 pm. at Institute of International Relations and Political Science at Vilnius University, Vokiečių str. 10, Conference Room 402.
