SPOTLIGHT

MUSSOLINI'S
SISTER

Despite the everyday banality of growing old, Hiam Jarjoura (85), an amusingly cynical lady from Nazareth- who has every reason to despise the world as experienced today- manages to rule over her entire world from a single old notebook, a cctv and a daily meal she cooks for her beloved son, Mubada (55).  Gradually and painfully, Hiam finds herself with more time to kill and a lot more to recall. The film offers a retreat into Hiam's discerning memory, as she consciously finds herself more and more alone, at the presence of strangers, and final reflections on love, politics and contempt.
