SCREENING TO BE FOLLOWED BY A Q&A WITH DIRECTOR
After 10 years in Scotland, Sara Ishaq travels back to her childhood home of Yemen and takes her camera along. She hopes to feel at home in the place that was once so close to her heart, but the complications soon become clear. Outside the gates of her family home, people are protesting against President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s authoritarian rule, and Ishaq and her family quickly become caught up in the movement. Ishaq contributes by acting as a local correspondent, sharing news with the international press. In this personal and touching film, Ishaq captures events in her own home throughout this tumultuous period, when multiple changes are afoot.
