1. Four poems by Mahmoud Darwish

    after the Olive Trees was filmed at the site of the 2016 Blue Cut Fire, Cajon Pass, California.

    Mahmoud Darwish (Arabic: محمود درويش‎‎, 13 March 1941 – 9 August 2008) was a poet widely regarded as the passionate voice of the Palestinian people. In his work, Palestine became a metaphor for the loss of Eden, birth and resurrection, and the anguish of dispossession and exile. His genteel yet searing poems of revolution and resistance are engraved in the hearts of millions of Palestinians and his words have been shouted by anti-occupation demonstrators in the streets of Ramallah, Damascus and Cairo.

    His quieter love poems, return both to the wellsprings of the Arabic poetic tradition and to the essential symbol of Palestine. In these poems the beloved is seen simultaneously in a private, essential human encounter and as a continuing metaphor for the lost land of Palestine.

    The four poems presented in this film, give a taste of the breadth of his vision, his linguistic power, and his cultural and national aspirations.
