Terrace of the Sea

Filmed in an unofficial Palestinian Bedouin camp established in 1948 on a stretch of beach north of Tyre, in South Lebanon, Terrace of the Sea uses a collection of family photographs taken over three generations as a prism through which to reflect on memory, loss and history. The film looks at their relationship to work and to the physical environment and how they’ve persevered in this ‘temporary’ home. Produced at Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab, Terrace of the Sea is a haunting work, a meditation on the process of memory and on the distances between photography and film, land and sea and – between seeing and being seen.
