A woman recounts her story of the mass exodus of Palestinians from Jerusalem in 1948, beginning with the arrival and ending with the departure. Moving backwards in time and through various landscapes, the video traces a decaying experience to a place that no longer exists. (13 mins., video)

Basma Alsharif is a visual artist who uses moving and still images, sound, and language to explore the anonymous individual in relation to political history and collective memory. Born in Kuwait of Palestinian origin, she received an MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago, and has been working in Cairo, Beirut, and Amman since then. Her work has been shown in exhibitions and film festivals internationally.
