Documentary “Muhi – Generally Temporary”

“For the past seven years Muhi, a brave and spirited Palestinian boy has been living in an Israeli hospital, unable to return to his home in Gaza. Caught between two worlds and two peoples, Muhi is raised in paradoxical circumstances that transcend identity, religion and the conflict that divides his world. His time at the hospital is running out and Muhi now faces the most critical choices of his life.”

I have been looking for this documentary for a while, ever since coming across the Q&A conversation clip below from the Other Israel festival. The documentary is by turns heartbreaking and infuriating, but most of all captures how the most abnormal situations become normalised as they are endured, and refocuses our attention on the aberration of routine violence.

Like many other films, the documentary has been made available to rent on Vimeo during corona times, although I am not certain if it is to be permanently available on this platform.
