Years after leaving her Palestinian village to follow her dreams of acting in France, Emmy-nominated Hiam Abbass returns home in this intimate documentary about four generations of women and their shared legacy of separation. At the age of 23, Abbass (known for her roles in Red Satin [FFDC 2003], Rock the Casbah [FFDC 2014], and Gaza Mon Amour [FFDC 2021] as well as the hit television series "Succession" and "Ramy") made the difficult decision to leave her grandmother, mother, and seven sisters in the Palestinian village of Deir Hanna, Galilee. Years later, in collaboration with her daughter, the film's director Lina Soualem, Abbass returned to her rapidly changing childhood home. Bye Bye Tiberias, Palestine's Academy Awards® entry, is an important film that beautifully portrays the complexity of Arab women's lives.—Various sources
