Emile Habibi: I Stayed in Haifa

Directed by: Dalia Karpel
60 Minutes, 1997

Documentary about Emile Habiby, Palestinian writer and politician. This film chronicles the last few weeks in his life. This journey into Habiby’s past tells the story of personal identity vs. homeland. As a Palestinian he has felt pressure to remain loyal to his country, yet is accepting and supportive of the existance of the State of Israel. This is a moving portrait of a public figure drawn from his own point of view at the end of his life.
