Mar Mama

Majdi El Omari  |  Cinema  |  2021  |  Palestine
A father and his daughter are at their home on a high hill of the town of Battir in Palestine. The father is trying to appease his six-year-old daughter’s fears of death during the Israeli forces’ raid of the town. He does so by distracting her with the filming of a stop-motion movie; until soldiers come over to their home to use their window as a sniper's spot. The father’s attempts thus fail, and the girl finds nothing other than imagination to escape from reality.
