“Fadia’s Tree” is a new documentary by Sarah Beddington. The film ‘is a portrait of a determined Palestinian woman living in a refugee camp in Lebanon and the challenge she sets her friend, the Director, to search for her ancestral home and the mulberry tree that once grew next to it. The homing instinct of migratory birds and an unlikely friendship that transcends borders are all elements that make this a unique and poetic way of addressing the Right of Return that has consistently been denied to the Palestinian refugees’.
‘Sarah made this striking film over fifteen years and has spent a great deal of time in the West Bank and in Bourj el Barajneh refugee camp in Beirut where, as a friend of Fadia, she is considered an honorary member of the community. In the UK, Sarah is one of the core members of the Artists for Palestine UK group of activists.’

‘A Palestinian refugee’s plaintive yearning for her homeland is explored in this sensitive, sombre documentary that also has thoughts about friendship, politics and birds’ (Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian).
