Discussion avec Assia Zaino

EVEN THOUGH MY LAND IS BURNING

Ben, an israeli jew, has been actively supporting the palestinian popular struggle against the occupation for ten years now. He has experienced injuries, arrests, abuse and death of close friends. For years he has been taking part in demonstrations, actions and protests, fighting alongside Palestinians against their oppression through the state of which he ́s a citizen of. But the current wave of unarmed popular struggle, which began with the building of the separation wall, has since shrunk substantially. The wall is built, the settlements are fact, the occupation stronger than ever. In a time when the vast majority of Israelis support their government ́s racist policies, Ben keeps on going. In the last five years he has found himself a political home away from home – the small village of Nabi Saleh in the west bank, where the local group of activists continue to resist the stealing of their land and water through the settlement across the valley. With this small community * Ben continues to participate in the demonstrations friday after friday, continues to believe that co-resistance leads to co-existence, that life together is possible when one only, as the activists of the village say, removes the occupation from his head.

Off Frame AKA Revolution Until Victory

Off Frame AKA Revolution Until Victory is a meditation on the Palestinian people's struggle to produce an image and self-­‐representation on their own terms in the 1960s and 1970s, with the establishment of the Palestine Film Unit as part of the PLO. Unearthing films stored in archives across the world after an unprecedented research and access, the film begins with popular representations of modern Palestine and traces the works of militant filmmakers in reclaiming image and narrative through revolutionary and militant cinema. In resurrecting a forgotten memory of struggle, Off Frame reanimates what is within the frame, but also weaves a critical reflection by looking for what is outside it, or what is off frame.

Le Chanteur de Gaza

Gaza. Synonymous to so many with conflict, destruction and despair but to Mohammed Assaf, and his sister Nour, Gaza is their home and their playground. It’s where they, along with their best friends Ahmad and Omar, play music, football and dare to dream big. Their band might play on second hand, beaten up instruments but their ambitions are sky-high. For Mohammed and Nour, nothing less than playing the world famous Cairo Opera Hall will do. It might take them a lifetime to get there but, as Mohammed will find out, some dreams are worth living for. Along the way, Mohammed will experience tragedy and loss. The world around him will shatter. Through it all, however, he will somehow retain the hope that his voice will somehow deliver him from the pain that surrounds him and bring joy to others. He sings at weddings, he drives a taxi to pay for his university studies. Even as the siege around Gaza intensifies, the prison around them ever more forbidding, Mohammed knows he has a rare gift. To make people smile and forget their troubles. And so, in front of him on TV one evening lies an impossible dream: the auditions for Arab Idol, the most popular show in the Arab world, are taking place in Cairo. The borders are closed. There is no way out. Somehow, he finds a way and makes it in front of the judges in Egypt. From there, destiny awaits, a chance to change his life and give a voiceless people the greatest feeling of all: the freedom to love, live and feel free.

RETURN TO HAIFA

The Palestinian city of Haifa wasn’t expecting anything despite its being enveloped by an obscure tension. Suddenly, shelling came from the east, from the mountains of Carmel. The shells flew though the midst of the city and poured into its Arab quarters. The streets of Haifa turned to chaos as terror spread in the city, which closed its shops and the windows of its houses. That happened on the 21st of April. 1948. Safia who had left her five – month old son Khaldoun, was searching for her husband Saeed amidst a surging flood of human beings. When she found him near the port, they returned home, panic- striken, in order to rescue their son. Their attempt was in vain, the shells and the British soldiers who blockaded the street hindered them from getting there. Twenty years later, after the June war of 1967, the Zionist occupation forces permitted families to visit their homes. Safia and Saeed returned to Haifa to find their son Khaldoun, now called Doff, enrolled in the Israeli reserve forces. He had been adopted by a childless Jewish family that had immigrated to Palestine in 1948. Who is the real Mother? Who is the real father ? What is a homeland ? and .. What is the way to return to Haifa .. to Palestine?
