Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave.
It is the story of two young women, survivors of the three weeks of death and destruction Israel unleashed on Gaza in 2008/9.
Mona Samouni,12 years old, and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, 27, represent the spirit and future of Palestinians. The film is a visual documentation of the Goldstone Report. But it is so much more.
It reveals the strength, hope, humanity and humour that flourish among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population.
All welcome. Admission and refreshments free of charge. Collection for expenses
