Emwas is a documentary about Amal, a Palestinian woman from Emwas, whose hometown was razed by the Israeli army in 1967. Amal decides to create a model of the village before it was demolished, based on the memories of people who lived there, and the village’s only remaining inhabitants, the monks of the Latrun Monastery.
