DocumentaryShortOther | 2013 | 11 min.
Directed by: Danielle Schwartz

In a pastoral house on the Israeli countryside live my grandfather, my grandmother, and a big crystal mirror that was taken from a Palestinian house during the Nakba - the depopulation of hundreds of thousand of Palestinians during and after the establishment of the state of Israel in the 1948 war. The story of the mirror is not a secret, but it remains untold. Why is it that we - Jewish Israelis - cannot address the mirror and others remnants of the Nakba, even when they are placed in the center of our lives? In this short conversation, my grandparents and I negotiate the ways to tell the untold, staging an allegory for the position the Nakba takes in the realities of Israeli Jews.
