The Key to the House

May 20, 2009

‘A Chave da Casa,’ the new documentary on Palestinian refugees in Brazil: I need to find this immediately. ‘The focus was on five refugees. The documentary tells their story beginning in the refugee camp and then in Brazil. Some, according to the director, are doing very well and are happy with their new life in Brazil, as is the case with the teacher who gives Arabic lessons to immigrants in Florianópolis. Others, like a PhD in Veterinary Genetics, whose wife stayed in Iraq, are not so happy. “Each one is at a different moment,” says Stela. One of the women complains that she no longer knows the direction to Mecca when it is time to pray. She would not like to return to the camp, of course, but to her native Palestine.’
