13.00   Out of Place: Memories of Edward Said  / 2005 / 137 min

Synopsis: In September 2003, Edward Said, the Palestinian and eminent Arab intellectual, died. In the spring of 2004, Said's grave was placed not in New York where he had lived most of his adult life, not in Palestine where he was born, but in the small Lebanese town of Brumana. This film begins with the story of Said's grave, symbolic of the complexities of his life. Guided by interviews with both Arab and Israeli thinkers, Out of Place is a journey through the memories and legacies of Edward Said, an exploration of the prospects for the reconciliation and coexistence that Said fought for throughout his life. The film examines the tangled web of displacement: the land of Palestine and its people, ravaged by the turbulent tides of history; the lives of Palestinians living as refugees in neighboring countries; the Jews, surviving long years of persecution in the Diaspora, returning to Israel from across the world, and the deep conflict of their mingled identity as victims and violators. The films ends with a solo piano performance at a memorial lecture by Daniel Baren-boim, who together with Said launched a program to bring about reconciliation through music, between the youth of Israel and Palestine.
