Don't Be Long follows a Palestinian American gal on vacation with her mother in Ojai who accidentally time travels to 1930s Palestine, where she spends time with her great-grandmother when she was her age. This film raises questions about intergenerational patterns, the power of oral storytelling, and modes of woman autonomy. It is a feminist and anti-colonial exploration of Palestinian culture pre-1948 and within the modern Palestinian-American, and how issues in womanhood are universally significant, no matter what time in history it occurred.
