Arna’s Children

by Julian Mer Kamis

A documentary from Israel, 2003, 84 minutes in Arabic and Hebrew with English Subtitles.

Juliano Mer Khamis, son of an Israeli Mother and Palestinian father, spends years of his youth teaching theater to Palestinian children as part of an alternative education program that his mother, Arna, established in the occupied West Bank. Years after his mother’s death, Mer Khamis returns to find that the children he knew and loved have now joined the intifada—and captures how childhood innocence is lost to war.
