I Am Not My Motherland
Written by Emily Acker
Directed by Rebecca Wright
As told by Hollywood—
As told by the fear mongering journalists—
As told by her refugee mother—
As told by her war hero grandfather—
An Israeli solider and a Palestinian woman encounter each other in an abandoned bunker. Decades later, a hot-shot surgeon and her fledgling resident botch a fairly standard surgery, ending in catastrophic results. Emily Acker’s I Am Not My Motherland reconsiders how stories are told and re-told, whether any account can come close to objective truth, and why a personal narrative is the hardest to challenge.
