Over dit evenement

Amreeka 2003 by Cherien Dabis

Showing on Friday the 18th of June at 20:00

“Amreeka,” which is set in 2003 at the outset of the American-led invasion of Iraq, is inspired by the experiences of Ms. Dabis, a Palestinian-Jordanian who grew up in Ohio and in Jordan and whose parents immigrated to the United States just before she was born. During the Persian Gulf war, she recalls in the production notes, her family faced the same kinds of persecution and ostracism that Muna and her sister’s family, the Halabys, suffer as the invasion continues.-

Wanted 18 2015 By Amer Shomali & Paul Cowan

Showing on Saturday the 19th of June at 20:00

Palestine's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film category at next year's Academy Awards is the animated documentary The Wanted 18. The debut film of Palestinian artist Amer Shomali centers on the town of Beit Sahour and their valiant determination to overthrow the Israeli occupation during the first intifada. Civil disobedience was one part of the effort—refusing to pay taxes to the occupation authority, for example. The heart of the film, however, is the townspeople's herd of 18 cows, purchased from a lefty Israeli kibbutznik. Local milk and produce cultivation was part of a widespread Palestinian boycott of Israeli products.

A World Not Ours 2012 By Mahdi Fleifel

Showing on Sunday the 20th of June at 20:00

World Not Ours borrows its title from a novel by the author and activist Ghassan Kanafani: it is a filmed portrait of the Palestinian refugee camp in South Lebanon known as Ein El-Helweh, or "sweet spring". Mahdi Fleifel was born there, and moved away with his family to live in Dubai and Europe – but often returned with his video camera to visit friends and relations and build up this richly personal archive of impressions and interviews. The result is a very watchable study of a stateless community, subsisting on dreams and memories of a lost homeland, and a generation of young men who have no prospects, sometimes drawn to jihadism out of sheer personal frustration; yet they are often quite as critical of the Palestinian leadership as everything else.
