Director: Leila Sansour
Film director Leila Sansour returns to Bethlehem to make a film about her home town, soon to be encircled by a wall. The film spans seven momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing beauty and political strife under occupation, and charts the creation of a campaign to compel international action to bring peace to the Middle East. “Open Bethlehem is a fierce and poignant plea against the incarceration of a city” (The Guardian). Followed by a live Q&A with Sara Apps, The Open Bethlehem Campaign’s Executive Director.
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing Storybook Ending (3.35 mins), directed by Harry Holland. A little girl must find all her childhood friends before bedtime.
With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
