East Meets East invites you to a screening of Lina Soualem's film BYE BYE TIBERIAS on April 17th, 4:30pm, at Jones 100 AND a Q&A with director Lina Soualem on April 18th, 4:30pm, at Jones 202.

Synopsis: In her early twenties, Hiam Abbass (Emmy-nominated for 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 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, 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. 82 mins. In French and Arabic with English subtitles.
