Synopsis: Sarah is invited to show her film in Israel as part of a film festival bus trip. She is hoping for political discussions and friendship, except the conversation stops each time she brings up the occupation of Palestine. So instead, Sarah talks to her dead dad over a noisy phone line.

"THE BUS TRIP is a film about untangling the complexities of one's own Jewish identity while remaining critical of Israeli practices that displace Palestinians from their lands. The modern world does not offer easy narratives." --Michal Piepiorka, BLIZEJ EKRANU (Polish film blog)
