Between borders

René Bo Hansen, Denmark, 1986

63 min.DK/Short fiction

This part fiction, part documentary portrait of a young Palestinian refugee describes the young man''s immediate dilemmas and choices as an exile. Lebanese sequences sketch in his native roots and background, Danish sequences place him in what is for him a cultural no man''s land, even after he has settled peacefully with wife and child. Letters from home somehow make him feel like a deserter.
