DFFF: LETTER TO A FRIEND

Director: Emily Jacir

43 mins, Palestine, 2019, Digital


This film is F-rated.

Palestinian artist Emily Jacir writes to a close friend concerning her family home, Dar Jacir, as well as the road on which it sits, and the city through which that road travels. Interlacing images, textures, movements, traces and sounds of over a century, Letter to a Friend is a video essay, a diary and a document, narrated by Jacir’s letter correspondence. It tells us we are here to bear witness to her house and neighbourhood, her home, ‘before a crime is inevitably committed.’

Screening exclusively online on IFI@Home as part of the Dublin Feminist Film Festival 2021, August 20th-22nd.
