Since You've Been Gone

The gifted Palestinian actor Mohammad Bakri (Private) made his directorial debut in 2002 with the documentary Jenin, Jenin, then spent two years fighting a censorship battle in the Israeli courts. He continued to perform with Habimah, Israel's national theater, but made headlines again when members of his family were implicated in a terrorist bombing. In this thoughtful 2005 video memoir Bakri laments the passing of his Palestinian mentor—author and long-time Knesset member Emil Habibi—and ponders his Israeli lawyer's characterization of him as a modern-day Job. In English and subtitled Hebrew and Arabic. 59 min.
