About the Film

THE MUTE’S HOUSE | בית האילמת

Abandoned by its Palestinian owners, the deserted building in Hebron is known to Israeli soldiers as “The Mute’s House”—its only occupants are a deaf woman, Sahar, and her eight-year-old son Yousef. The family’s unique story, a touching counterpoint to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is told through the eyes of the young and charismatic Yousef as he goes about his daily routine in the heart of a city torn apart by hatred and violence.
