A Sleeping Tree Dreams of Its Roots
A bold and eclectic cinematic style defines the work of filmmaker Michka Sa√§l and her friend, writer Nadine Ltaif as they journey from childhoods in the Middle East to their chosen home of Montr√©al. Sa√§l is Jewish, Ltaif is Arab. Together they overcome the divisive prejudices of their upbringing and embark on an engaging search for clarity, familiarity and historical significance among the immigrant communities of Montr√©al. Sa√§l uses super-8 home movies, old photographs, dramatizations and casual conversations to cross personal and political boundaries, giving voice to the varied ancestries of us all. In French with English subtitles.
