LSS: 70 Years of Nakba - 9 Palestinian Short Films

Description: 70 Years of Nakba – A Programme of 9 Palestinian Shorts

This programme was curated on the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Nakba (The Catastrophe), by the Palestine Strand of the Creative Interruptions research project. The research has aimed to explore how Palestinian filmmakers have used their cinema to give voice to their history and experience.

The programme makes use of the rich collection of short films produced by a diverse group of creative practitioners living both within the borders of historic Palestine and outside it. It enables us to understand the diversity of Palestinian experience from exile, to occupation, to living under siege as well as in refugee camps as stateless citizens. Screening Palestinian shorts enables us to appreciate the diversity of talent within Palestinian film production because many filmmakers find it difficult to secure funding and support for their projects as stateless people.
