This Is My Picture When I Was Dead


Bashir Meraish was a high-ranking lieutenant in the Palestine Liberation Organization. When Bashir was four-years-old, two men attacked the car that he and his father were riding in, releasing 13 bullets and presumably killing them both.
25 years later, director Mahmoud al Massad examines Bashir’s miraculous life, a life that was thought to have ended on the night of the assassination. We hear the adult Bashir, in voice-over, wrestling with memories of his father, the history of Palestine, and an inspirational teacher who told him, “If your father’s weapon was a gun, yours is a pen.”
