The Greatest Wait

Razan AlSalah  |  Cinema  |  2018  |  Palestine
Producer: Emilie Dudognon
“The Greatest Wait” is an experimental film that investigates the Palestinian exilic condition in the story of impossible and eternal return to Palestine through virtual reality. Zei, a passport-less third-generation refugee, travels the world through Streetview VR to trace her family’s forced migration. Geographies collapse, hystories too, as she experiences interconnected events between Haifa, Beirut and Montreal in the 1940s, 90s and 2020s.
