Many Palestinian youth living in Lebanese Refugee camps believe that immigration is the only solution for their economic & social problems.  This film explores the experiences of these youth, who tried to pursue the "dream" of immigration and those who are finally living the reality of a new exile.  This project is the result of a collaboration by refugee youth, who participated in preparing, shooting & editing this documentary which was filmed in Lebanon & Germany.The documentary was coordinated by Hicham Kayed, about Palestinian Youth from the Beirut Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts/ Al-Jana.www.al-jana.com

Waiting for Ben Gurion
A documentary by Norma Marcos

 I shot Waiting for Ben Gurion spontaneously during a time when I was put in prison at the Ben Gurion airport in Israel. I was going from Paris to the Palestinian Territories to prepare my first feature film Nouzha which obtained the Grand Prix for best script among 357 feature scripts. While everyone was telling me to give up resisting the Israeli Authorities due to the hopelessness of the situation, I decided to psychologically resist the illegal treatment that I was facing as a French citizen of Palestinian origins, by choosing to remain aware of the relativity of both internal and external limitation. Within the inner newfound space of these confines, I discovered hope. 2006, Palestine, 30 min
