Anti-semitism or Palestine-sympathizing? Lamakaan lets you watch, think, argue and theorize, at this film screening.

Asia Lifeline To Gaza is screening the film 'Paradise Now' on 7th November as part of the Palestinian Film Festival commencing on 7th November, at Lamakaan.

The 3-day film festival will showcase documentaries and feature films on the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the current situation in the region. These films from international directors aim to throw light on the society, culture and political travails of Palestine.

2 young Palestinian men, Khaled and Said, from the Gaza Strip, are both recruited to carry out a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv. The 2 men are allowed to spend what is presumably their last night alive with their families.

However, since absolute secrecy must be maintained and they can tell nobody of their mission, theirs can be no proper farewell. The next morning, the men are brought to the border. The bombs have been attached to their bodies in such a way as to make them completely hidden from view. However, the operation does not go according to plan, and the 2 friends lose sight of each other.

Separated from each other and left to their own devices, it's up to them to face their destiny and stand up for their convictions.

Paradise Now was the first Palestinian film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It also won an award for the "Best Foreign Language Film" at the 63rd Golden Globe Awards, the first time a Palestinian film was nominated for such an award.

The screening is free for everyone. Please contact 98482-99980 for further details.
