Opening Night Gala / UK Premiere: When I Saw You + Q&A
A masterful new work by Palestine’s first female feature director.
Jordan, 1967: free-spirited 11-year-old Tarek escapes a Palestinian refugee camp determined to return home, and is taken in by a band of freedom fighters. When his mother comes after him, they begin a journey from helpless victimhood to the defiant possibility of hope. Making its UK premiere direct from acclaim at the Toronto and Berlin Film Festivals, this is a masterful new work by Palestine’s first female feature director. ‘Beautiful, groundbreaking and deeply, deeply moving.’ – Huffington Post
Followed by a Q&A with Annemarie Jacir.
