Sayed Kashua is a talented and ambitious Israeli writer with a top-rated television comedy series, but Kashua never feels at home. He's a Palestinian citizen of Israel, a walking, talking oxymoron, an invisible man constantly called upon to justify himself, his work and even his decision to write in Hebrew. Director Dorit Zimbalist's fast-paced documentary follows Kashua's search for a home for his family, makes us feel what it's like to be a stranger in your own land, constantly afraid of the violence that ripples just beneath the surface. Filmed over seven years, SAYED KASHUA - FOREVER SCARED is a fascinating journey inside the complicated life and complex mind of a unique creative force.
