Ver The Ruins of Lifta

Lifta is the only Arab village abandoned in the 1948 Arab-Israeli war that has not been completely destroyed or repopulated. Its ruins serve as a haunting backdrop for a confrontation between the two mega-narratives that underlie the Arab-Israeli conflict; the Nakba and the Holocaust.

I did not see the film and was curious to see what it was about. It is a very detailed look at the lives of a number of people in the village of Lifta, Iraq. The film is primarily based on a series of interviews with the residents of the village, which gives the viewer a rare glimpse into their lives. The footage is beautifully shot, and the interviews with these people are fascinating. This is the first documentary I have seen about the war in Iraq. I was not told what the title of the film was, but I soon realized it was "The Ruins of Lifta" and was intrigued by the idea. The film is a journey into the lives of the people in the village, and their reactions to the violence they had experienced. There are many people in this village that have been affected by the war. There is a lot of emotion in this film. Some of the people in this village have been wounded, have lost family members, or have been injured. Many have been displaced by the violence. They have been punished for not wanting to return to the house where they were born. This is a very emotional film. It is very well-made and has many interesting interviews with people. There is no overt violence, but some of the interviews are very graphic and some of the people do not speak English very well. One interviewee, who was wounded in an airstrike, was trying to explain how much pain she felt. It is a very intense and powerful film. If you are interested in Iraq, and/or the war in Iraq, then you should see this film.

As the story unfolds, one can't help but feel that it is not only a story of a hero, but a story of a people and of a nation. The story of the late Sotiris Likia is fascinating and his story is a reminder of what people were like in the 1920s and 1930s. We hear his stories as we see the personal effects of the WWII on the people and the monuments of the town. It is a story of a nation torn apart, as the same war that was fought in Greece against Nazism has been fought in Syria and Iraq. The Italian poet, Pico, spoke of a Greek man who came to Italy, knowing that it would be a wasteland, but felt it was a necessity. It was the same way for people in Greece during WWII. They came to stay, but for many, they couldn't find work or food and the war and the occupation caused it to be more than a way to survive. The story of the main character, Lifta, as we learn from his mother, is a good one. He was a good son and a good man, and his sacrifice made his people more whole and his nation more unified. He was a good man, a man who took risks, and he knew how to lead a people. His sacrifice was greater than the sacrifice of his brother, the hero of the war, and the sacrifice of the people and the nation. He was a hero, but his sacrifice was greater than his brother's. The story is full of lessons about human behavior and the importance of trust, and it is a reminder that the most important thing in life is to be of good will and to be willing to sacrifice for what you believe in.
