Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Golden Eye Prize, Stefano Savona’s 2018 documentary follows the Samouni family; a small community of farmers who are about to celebrate a wedding in the rural outskirts of Gaza City.
It’s going to be the first celebration since the last war. Amal, Fuad, their brothers and their cousins have lost their parents, their houses and their olive trees. The neighbourhood where they live is being rebuilt.
As they replant trees and plough fields, they face their most difficult task: piecing together their own memory. Through these young survivors’ recollections, Samouni Road conveys a deep, multifaceted portrait of a family before, during and after the tragic event that changed its life forever.
