Borderless

Synopsis: 

The filmmaker tells his personal story towards defining Freedom, a concept that is still obscure for over four million Palestinians living under the Israeli occupation. The story projects a surrealistic approach to showcase Northern Cyprus as an example to realize how simple surroundings can always connect Palestinians to the confinement of their reality. It is mainly a projection of an intense yearning for circumventing the constraints of occupation and breaking the manacles. Articulating this embedded desire for claiming a sense of freedom for Palestinians is akin to finding the missing piece in the puzzle of freedom, as Nelson Mandela once said:

“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians."
