Bye Bye Tiberias – NZ Premiere

In her early twenties, Hiam Abbass left her native Palestinian village to follow her dream of becoming an actress in Europe, leaving behind her mother, grandmother, and seven sisters.

Thirty years later, her filmmaker daughter Soualem returns with her to the village and questions for the first time, her mother’s bold choices, her chosen exile, and the way the women in their family influenced both their lives.

Set between past and present, the film pieces together images of today, family footage from the nineties and historical archives to portray four generations of daring Palestinian women who keep their story and legacy alive through the strength of their bonds, despite exile, dispossession, and heartbreak.
