Unmade Film: The Voiceover

In April 1948 Deir Yassin was attacked by two Jewish paramilitary groups and over 100 villagers were brutally killed. The massacre of Deir Yassin is considered to be one of the pivotal events that led to the exodus of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from many other towns and villages. In 1951 a mental hospital was established on the grounds of Deir Yassin, incorporating the buildings that remained intact after the massacre. Initially treating Holocaust survivors, the psychiatric clinic is today also known for its treatment of and research into the so-called Jerusalem syndrome.

Unmade Film: The Voiceover explores the many implications of this superimposition in the form of an audio-walk through Deir Yassin guided by Mohammad Bakri (Arabic) and Nayef Rashed (English).
