WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE is a film about personal responses to trauma. It explores how after profound pain, some people go on to develop strengths they never had before.
Through my lens as a trauma psychologist we meet individuals whose child or parent was killed in one of the world's most unrelenting conflicts. But instead of finding hate or despair, we discover Bushra, Rami, Meytal, and Bassam, all transforming their loss into reconciliation.
Although they face opposition at every turn, from family, community and their own governments, they never give up. For the experience of trauma has changed them - each glimpsed the nobility of their enemy and their broken hearts are now filled with the wisdom of pain and compromise.
We follow Bushra, Rami, Meytal, and Bassam through heartbreaking pain, internal struggles and courageous shifts in thinking, stirring us to hope. This story about building peace with your enemy, about private transformation and political change speaks to us all.
