|Chapter title||The Notion of Home in Middle Eastern Cinema: The Presence of the Absence|
The highly regular use of the notion of home in the everyday has remained tactfully unexplored within the wider context of law and popular culture. It is hardly ever the case that issues of property law are explored within that context. More specifically, they remain strictly embedded in the law’s domain. The examination of the notion of home and its relation to popular culture within the middle eastern cinematic tradition is even rarer. This paper seeks to address this absence. In doing so, this paper re-establishes the relationship of property law to popular culture through an examination of a small sample of middle eastern movies. This paper is divided in two parts. The first part of this paper addresses the presence of the emotionality of the notion of home in the Middle Eastern cinematic tradition and juxtaposes this with the absence of emotionality in the construction of the notion of home in English law. The second part of this paper addresses the absence of alternative notions of home in the Middle Eastern cinematic tradition through an examination of socio-cultural factors.
