OUT OF PLACE – MEMORIES OF EDWARD SAID



In September 2003, Edward Said died. In the spring of 2004, Said’s grave was placed, not in New York where he had lived most of his adult life, nor in Palestine where he was born, but in the small Lebanese town of Brumana. This film begins with the story of Said’s grave, symbolic of the complexities of his life. Guided by interviews with Arab, Israeli and American thinkers, Out of Place is a journey through the memories and legacies of Edward Said. The film examines the tangled web of displacement: The lives of Palestinians living as refugees in neighbouring countries; the Jews, surviving long years of persecution in the diaspora, and settling in Israel from across the world; the deep conflict of Israelis’ mingled identity as historic victims and contemporary aggressors.
