The Tale of the Three Lost Jewels

Directed by: Michel Khleifi
112 Minutes, 1995

A little boy and a young woman go through several portals of life, depicted as initiations, to learn that life and dreams are but aspects of one and the same, seen from different vantage points. This very classical tale unfolds against the background of occupied Gaza, where everyday life, though difficult enough, still has enough of a cultural backdrop to allow the musings of growing up to reflect a rich inner life.
