Before yesterday it was the 5th of June. 40 years after the great Arab defeat in 67. The war which is known to us as the “Nakseh”. Year by year and day by day, we started to forget this date and what happened at that time. Even the people who witness it and suffer from it, started to forget.

At that day, I sat with my elders and did some chat with them about the days of the war. Where were they? What were they doing at that time? How were they feeling? I took them 40 years back. They shared me their memories and experience. I’ve just became more aware of what was happing at that time.

I made this video of my elder’s memories, so that the new young upcoming generation, the generation of my baby girl Joon “which you will hear her voice in the movie”, will have the chance to hear from their fathers elders about the “Nakseh” which is being forgotten day by day.

The movie is about 23 minute, enjoy it.
