The directors of this 16mm French-Israeli documentary, Palestinian Elia Suleiman (Chronicle of a Disappearance) and Israeli Amos Gitai, travel from Paris to the War and Peace Film Festival in Vesoul. On the train, the longtime friends chat about their pasts in Haifa and Nazareth, their passports, and foreign travel. In Vesoul, they meet with both the festival director and the French-speaking press (with Gitai translating for Suleiman). Shown at the 1997 Venice Film Festival.
