A filmmaker’s invitation into a deeply personal and fiercely nostalgic journey that delves into love, longing, the trauma of forced migration, and the loss of a family home in Palestine. The Poem We Sang transforms lifelong regrets into a healing journey of creative catharsis and bearing witness to generational grief and survival.
