Cinema Palestino Presents: Love and Desire in Palestine + Q&A CTBA
Showing as part of Special Screenings
This February, in the month of Valentine’s Day, Cinema Palestino and Creative Interruptions present a programme of three films from Palestine that explore love and desire under conditions of occupation and dispossession. The films deal with experiences of romantic love, the love of family and the love for one’s homeland.
In Rakan Mayasi’s Bonbonne (2017) a husband detained in an Israeli jail where visits are restricted resorts to an unusual way to conceive a child with his wife. While Mohammed and Ahmad Abou Nasser’s Condom Lead (2013) explores the search for physical and psychological safety in the midst of war. Finally, Nahed Awwad’s moving documentary Gaza Calling (2012) follows two families who have been torn apart, exploring the struggle to stay connected with loved ones under conditions of occupation.
This event will feature a Q&A with Nahed Awwad (Director of Gaza Calling).
