Bye Bye Tiberias

Opens on May 20

Director: Lina Soualem Run Time: 82 min. Release Year: 2024 Language: Arabic

Starring: Hiam Abbass, Lina Soualem

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 Lina 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.

“The distractions that pull Abbass’s stare away from her daughter’s lens give Bye Bye Tiberias a pointedly political backbone that the documentary buoys with clever editing and a tangible self-assuredness.” ~ Roxana Hadadi, New York Magazine
