Best of Karama Human Rights Film Festival – Special Screening
- Tuesday, March 12, 17:30, Institut Francais (Francouzský institut)
It represents an important platform for enabling festivals from other Arab countries to connect. First held in December 2010, the annual festival has since been acclaimed at home and abroad primarily thanks to its excellent programming, which comprises feature films, documentaries and animated movies.
Karama (meaning “Dignity”) also includes local productions in its programme, as well as important international films that bring distinguished guests to the festival.
Since its inception, One World has provided systematic support to the organisers of the Jordanian festival as well as assistance in staging the event.
The following three films will be screened in one evening:
- Missing, Tariq Rimawi, 2010, 3 min. This animated movie by a Jordanian filmmaker was successfully presented at the Karama 2012 festival.
- I Want to Live, Ahmad Tariq Hamad, 2010, 18 min. This Palestinian documentary depicts one day in the life of a poor young man from Bethlehem. The film won the main prize for a short documentary at last year’s Karama festival.
- Gaza 36 mm, Khalil Al-Mozian, 2012, 48 min. This documentary from Palestine charts the decline of the arthouse cinema tradition in the Gaza Strip in an original way.
Sawsan Darwaza, the director of the Karama festival, and Ehab Al Khatib, Founder and Artistic Director, will attend the screenings.
The films will be screened in their original language with English subtitles.
