“Farewell my library! Farewell mansion of wisdom, temple of philosophers, institute of science, council house of literature!” ~ Khalil al-Sakakini

Chronicles of a cultural destruction: the story of 70,000 "collected" Palestinian books during the 1948 war by the newly born State of Israel.
The film employs a multifaceted approach to tell a multi-layered story: dramatic location filming, eyewitness accounts, archival footage, pictorial material, C.G.I.—computer generated images, documents and culture critiques.


Director: Benny Brunner
