News from House, News from Home (12A*) + Introduction


An older man in a blue shirt and head wrap talks whilst animating with his hand.

The third and final documentary in Amos Gitai's House trilogy looks at the location of his previous two films and the physical and emotional importance it holds.

25 years after his first film, Amos Gitai goes back again to the house in News from Home News from House. The stonecutter from the first film is now 70 years old and lives in a new village while some members of the Dajani family, the original Palestinian owners, live in Jordan. The house is no longer the common space that united the first film with the second. The juxtaposition of stories and memories have replaced the site. The House has become a mental space for those preparing for exile, whether internal or external.

This film completes the trilogy which began with 1980's House and continued in 1998's A House in Jerusalem. Forming a sort of human archaeology, exploring the relationships between the house's inhabitants, past and present, between Israelis and Palestinians
