Showing tonight is a brand new film called OUT OF PLACE, OUT OF TIME.
(Stefan Markworth 50mins) A compelling, intimate documentary that reveals
the very difficult issues facing Palestinian refugees of different
generations who have been living in limbo for the past 55 years in the
Bourj Al-Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon.
The main feature of the evening will be the award-winning JENIN JENIN
(Mohammed Bakri 50mins). The film includes testimony from Jenin refugee
camp residents after the Israeli army's Defensive Wall operation, during
which the city and camp were the scenes of fierce fighting. The operation
ended with Jenin camp flattened and scores of Palestinians dead.
Palestinians and human rights groups accused Israel of committing war
crimes in the April 2002 attack on the camp. The film, banned in Israel
upon its release, despite director Bakri’s appeal to the supreme court,
lets survivors recount in their own words what really happened and in
doing so opens a rare window on refugee camp life under the harshest of
"Unfiltered and unvarnished...a testament to human dignity and strength."

"I hope they will censor every film I do. I want them to understand my
reality, another truth..." -Director Mohamed Bakri, in response to the
ban of Jenin Jenin in Israel.
