  • My Simple Story (32’) by Izidore K. Musallam

A donkey decides to return from occupied Palestine to his ancestors’ home in Haifa, Israel. Sami, a nine year-old energetic, smart and confident Palestinian boy decides to help his friend – the donkey – in this unusual journey of return through the occupied West Bank and its checkpoints.

  • Very Humane (32’) by Osama Fawzi

Mahmoud, a twelve-year old boy, works besides going to school to help his unemployed father and ill grandmother. His growing body prevents him from continuing to work as a money collector in a small bus. However, his honesty, fairness and straight forwardness help him overcome the many obstacles he encounters.

Closing Film, starting 6.30PM (by invitation only)

  • Carlos (333’) by Olivier Assayas
    Ilich Ramirez Sanchez (Carlos) is a key figure in the history of international terrorism of the 70’s and 80’s, from pro-Palestinian activism to the Japanese Red Army. At once a figure of the extreme left and an opportunistic mercenary in the pay of powerful Middle Eastern secret services, he ended up forming his own organization. This film is the story of a revolutionary internationalist, both manipulator and manipulated, as he is dragged by the currents of contemporary history.
