In Her Footsteps

 

To find a better life for their family, the filmmaker’s parents left their house in the Bedouin village of Tal-a-Sabeh and moved to Omer, a Jewish, largely Ashkenazi, and elitist town. Now, after 10 years of struggling with breast cancer, her mother has one wish: to be buried in Omer, but the town has never dealt with the issue of burying its Muslim residents. The film explores family intimacy, social and political dilemmas, and questions of identity, nationality, and the meaning of home.
