“Until When...?”, is a really terrific documentary film that both reveals the horrors of the Israeli occupation and, at the same time, allows the viewers to learn a lot about individual Palestinians and their families. The Palestinians speak for themselves, right into the camera — to us. They are articulate, warm, and absolutely committed to their rights to return to their ancestral homes (from which their families have been forcibly expelled).

Set during the current Intifada, this documentary follows four Palestinian families living in Dheisheh Refugee Camp near Bethlehem. Fadi is thirteen and cares for his four younger brothers, the Hammash family pass on the lessons of life with humor and passion, Sana is a single woman who endures long commutes to do community work, and Emad and Hanan are a young couple trying to shield their daughter from the harsh realities of the occupation.They talk about their past and discuss the future with humor, sorrow, frustration and hope. "Until When...?", paints an intimate in-depth portrait of Palestinian lives today.

Director: Dahna Abourahme
Producers: Annemarie Jacir, Suzy Salamy, Jess Ghannam
