Neta Elkayam and Amit Haï Cohen are two musicians living in Jerusalem. Partners in life and on stage, they create music that revisits their common Jewish Moroccan heritage and attempts to heal the wounds of exile carried by their parents. In Your Eyes, I See My Country follows them as they journey for the first time to Morocco. Generously opening to Kamal Hachkar’s attentive camera, the couple performs across the country, visiting the neighbours their relatives left behind, exploring their Berber roots and witnessing first-hand a society where Muslims and Jews cohabit in peace. From one musical encounter to another, Neta and Amit reshape their perception of their dual identities. With a deep and sincere humanism, they interrogate their place in the world and their future with their new-born child. Enlivened by enchanting musical performances, Hachkar’s compassionate film resurrects the dream of building bridges between cultures.
