Ruminating on the tragedy of Israel and Palestine, a Jewish writer questions the narratives of nation and home that she learned in school. Through poetry and hand-drawn animation, Homeland illustrates the shattering of innocence and the shattering of two peoples, bound together by land and history, pulled apart by endless violence. Though Homeland is specifically about Palestine and Israel, the underlying message of the film is more universal. It is a plea for peace, understanding and compassion among people of different backgrounds and beliefs. To underline the global nature of this theme, Homeland is narrated in multiple languages (Arabic, Hebrew, English, French, Farsi) with as many choices of subtitles.
