“They were young, talented and free in New York. Dorit Rabinyan was an Israeli novelist and Hasan Hourani was a Palestinian artist. Their passionate friendship, impossible at home, flourished abroad. Then, in 2003 while visiting his family, Hourani drowned in Jaffa.” Andrew Kavanagh’s short animation reimagines this true story of Hasan Hourani’s friendship with Dorit Rabinyan and his tragic death. Adopting a narrative style inspired by Dorit’s own article “The Exile’s Return” and a visual style inspired by Hasan’s illustrated children’s book “Hasan Everywhere”, this moving tale of friendship and homecoming unfolds within, and as tribute to, the imaginative landscapes of these two young artists.
