    Sacrifices
    Director: Osama Muhammed
    2000/ 113 minutes.
    Syria/France
    Arabic with English subtitles

    Sacrifices is a visually
    stunning and heart-wrenching film which explores how violence and power justify
    themselves, creating self-perpetuating rituals and discourses. The story
    revolves around a large family controlled by a patriarch who exercises absolute
    power. It is this grandfather who has fertilized the soil, created the family
    and planted the giant tree around which their lives revolve.

    We Were Communists
    Director: Maher Abu Samara
    2010 85 mins Lebanon/France/United Emirates

    We Were Communists is a meditation on the lives of four members of the Lebanese communist party who in the past were connected by ideological commitment and who have remained close friends.

  2. 5.6.2011
    Salata Biladi
    Director: Nadia Kamal
    2008 105 mins Egypt
    Arabic with English subtitles

    The family tradition of the prize-winning director, Nadia Kamal, is a complex mix of religions and cultures. Her mother was half-Jewish, half-Italian Catholic who adopted Islam when she married Nadia’s father, who was half Turkish, half-Ukrainian. Driven by the knowledge that her 10-year old nephew, Nabil, is growing up in a society that speaks of the clash of cultures as something taken for granted, the director decides to have her mother share the convoluted family history.

  3. 3.7.2011
    FIX ME
    Director: Raad Andoni
    2009: 98 mins
    Palestine/France/Switzerland
    Arabic with English subtitles

    Ra’ad Andoni suffers from a chronic headache that has lasted for several generations, and that doesn’t look like letting up any time soon. This is because Ra’ad is a Palestinian living in Ramallah where the chances of a tension-free life are unimaginable.

    Through his encounters with family and friends, Andoni explores the realities of life for thousands of Palestinians, torn from their history and homeland. The film, which can be called a Palestinian work in progress, is full of humour and irony.
