Homeland by George Sluizer
Homeland-Give us land, you get peace


“Give us land, you get peace”

George Sluizer’s deeply personal and impassioned HOMELAND is an emotive reflection on war. Sluizer’s near-death experience provokes a reckoning with his own history, when he reunites with two families he has filmed since 1974. His story is set in the ongoing tragedy of the Palestinian diaspora, and the involvement with his subjects is poignant nearly beyond measure. HOMELAND is a very rare opportunity to receive a personal glimpse of the Palestinian story.
