The Palestine Film Festival opens

Posted at 3:00 pm, April 28, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

© Zindeeq PFF The annual festival celebrating the rich film culture of Palestine returns tomorrow, with 2 weeks of screenings at the Barbican, SOAS and UCL. It’s fair to say that this year’s programme is the most impressive yet, with documentaries ranging from the heartbreaking ‘Tears of Gaza’ (below) to the starkly confrontational ‘American Radical’, plus a smattering of dramas including furious opener ‘Zindeeq’ (above). Anyone with a passing interest in the current political fracturing of the Middle East will find the festival exciting and enlightening.

For info, see palestinefilm.org and next week’s issue of Time Out Magazine.
