FILM! Bye Bye Tiberias *SOLD OUT*
In her early twenties, Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner, Succession) left her native Palestinian village to follow her dream of becoming an actress in Europe, leaving behind her mother, grandmother, and seven sisters. Thirty years later, her filmmaker daughter Lina Soualem returns with her to the village and questions for the first time her mother’s bold choices, her chosen exile and the way the women in their family influenced both their lives. Set between past and present, Bye Bye Tiberias pieces together images of today, archive family footage from the nineties and historical archives to portray four generations of daring Palestinian women who keep their story and legacy alive through the strength of their bonds, despite exile, dispossession, and heartbreak.
Bye Bye Tiberias recently won Best Documentary at the BFI London Film Festival 2023 and will be representing Palestine at the Oscars 2024.
