BONBONNE Rakan Mayasi (Palestine, Lebanon) 15 mins

CONDOM LEAD Mohammed and Ahmad Abou Nasser (Palestine) 2103, 15mins

Playing on the name of the 2009 Israeli offensive on Gaza «Cast Lead», the film explores the search for physical and psychological safety and equilibrium in the middle of war. Right when we need the healing power of intimacy the most, does love and the desire for intimacy become a dream? The film was selected for Cannes in 2013.

Twins Mohammed and Ahmad Abou Nasser were born in the Gaza strip. Since making this first short, they have produced the feature drama Degrade (2015). They now live and work in Paris

GAZA CALLING dir Nahed Awwad, (Palestine, Switzerland, UAE) 2012, 64 min,.

Two families torn apart. They share the same “crime”: being registered with a Gaza address on their Identity Cards. Under Israeli rule, they are considered “infiltrators” in their own country. Their lives have turned into a permanent struggle. Parents can only talk to their sons on the phone; sisters can only see their brothers on the internet – mothers and their children fighting to be together at last…

Nahed Awwad is an independent filmmaker. Who has worked in the industry since 1997. In 2002 she started directing her own films, making a mixture of experimental, short and feature length documentaries. To date she has released 8 films.
