Cinema On Demand: 1982 (PG*)

Palestine Film Festival 2020

A teacher stands at the back of her classroom with children at desks

On the last day of school in June 1982, 11-year-old Wissam wants to tell his crush Joanna that he loves her. 

However, this heart-stopping pursuit is marred by that fact that war is inching closer and closer. From their classrooms in the mountains on the outskirts of Beirut, the children see warplanes over-head and an imminent invasion. 

Starring actress and Oscar-nominated director Nadine Labaki as Yasmine, the schoolteacher trying to keep calm in the face of cataclysmic brink,1982 is a semi-autobiographical first feature by Leba-nese director Oualid Mouaness, that brings us the story of looming war through the innocent eyes of a child in love for the first time.

This film includes a pre-recorded intro by director Oualid Mouaness.
