Synopsis

Athens, 1983. The press reports that four-year old Bashir is killed during the assassination of his father, a top PLO lieutenant. A tragedy, yet what if Bashir's death was not the end of his journey? Today, he would be 29 years old. He would have to dig through his past to find out what kind of life he would have lived, only to witness the dream of a Palestinian state his father died for turning to dust. In this experimental, highly original and occasionally surreal film, Mahmoud al Massad redefines what a documentary can be, with fascinating results. Screened at the Dubai Film Connection in 2008, 'This Is My Picture When I Was Dead' secured the top DIFF Prize.
