Directed by Hicham Kayed/Dahna Abourahme
Palestine, 2004, 13/76mins.

In their second exile, a Palestinian family settles in Lebanon after fleeing Kuwait during the Gulf War. The children, who were raised with epic tales of their grandfather's heroism in the defence of Palestine, finally meet him on the day before he dies. Inspired by a true story, Lemonade is the outcome of a youth storytelling project run under the auspices of the Al-Jana Resource Centre in Lebanon, and was written, cast and edited with the participation of young residents of the Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut.

Set during the current Intifada, Until When follows four Palestinian families living in Dheisheh Refugee Camp near Bethlehem. Fadi is 13 and cares for his four younger brothers, the Hammashes are a close-knit family who pass on the lessons of life with humour and passion, Sana is a single woman who endures long commutes to do community work, and Emad and Hanan are a young couple trying to shield their daughter from the harsh realities of the occupation. They talk about their past and discuss the future with humour, sorrow, frustration and hope. The documentary paints an intimate in-depth portrait of Palestinian lives today.
