Sarah Beddington – Fadia’s Tree Director








Dreaming of a homeland she is denied, Fadia Lobani, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, sets a challenge to her new friend Sarah Beddington, to find an ancient mulberry tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence in Sa’sa, at her ancestral homeland. Guided only by inherited memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon, ‘Fadia Tree’ chronicles this 15-year journey and the beautiful friendship it produced.
