Sayed Kashua, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, is one of the leading authors and journalists known for his books and humoristic columns in Hebrew..."I'm scared of cars, of dogs, of snakes; I'm scared of airplanes, helicopters, tanks and soldiers. I'm scared of terrorist attacks. I'm scared of Jews, I'm scared of Arabs, I'm scared that some day, they'll put us in refugee camps" (Sayed Kashua, Haaretz, 2002)...Sayed Kashua always feels he doesn't belong. The Jews don't like him because he's an Arab. The Arabs don't like him because he's successful. The Arabs think he's a collaborator. The Jews think he's a drunk. He's always viewed as an Other, and he's always scared. SAYED KASHUA – FOREVER SACRED accompanies Kashua, an Israeli-Arab author and scriptwriter, for seven years through the upheavals and events that change his life. This is an intimate yet political portrait of a writer and publicist who is also a loving husband and father of two. His family pays a heavy price for the choices he makes and the perpetual wandering from place to place, from nation to nation, belonging neither here nor there.
