Casting new light on Palestine
FILMS bringing new perspectives on life in Palestine will be shown in Bristol next month.
The Bristol Palestine film festival returns on Friday, December 7 for a second season of films, art and talks on economic, social, political and cultural life in the occupied territories.
Like last year, the festival features a range of films, from moving dramas to quirky comedies that aim to move beyond the clichéd images from TV news reports.
Festival patron Ken Loach, pictured, and the writer and broadcaster Bidisha will open the festival before a screening of 5 Broken Cameras, a multi award-winning documentary that was filmed by West Bank farmer Emad Burnat over a five year period during which the huge changes occurred in and around his village.
