About the film
• Imagine that you have parents but were raised without them. Imagine that you can’t talk to your siblings because you each speak a different language. This film chronicles the extraordinary saga of a Palestinian family dispersed by the turmoil that shaped the 20th century: the Spanish Civil War, in which the father, Palestinian journalist Najati Sidki, fought against Franco; World War II; the Nakba; and the Lebanese Civil War.

Amal Ramsis was born and raised in Cairo, and studied Cinema in Madrid. She has conducted numerous workshops around the world with women who have no experience with filmmaking. Ramsis is the founder and director of the Cairo International Women’s Film Festival. Her films ‘Only Dreams’ (2005), ‘Life’ (2008), ‘Forbidden’ (2011) and ‘The Trace of the Butterfly’ (2014) won several international awards and have been screened at numerous festivals.
