As a product of director Zain Wahbeh’s studies in MA architecture at the Royal College of Art, Traversing the Reimagined Palestinian Neighbourhood uses archival imagery and information, reinterpreted and animated to demonstrate the environmental changes of her home country from a local perspective. The film acts as a form of cultural restoration in the face of catastrophe, destruction and pain.

"I have actively confronted the dissolution of the Palestinian vernacular under the Zionist colonial occupation, through multidisciplinary archival practices … this audiovisual experience attempts to recapture the essence of what is physically unsalvageable under a brutal colonial occupation." - Zain Wahbeh
