This year’s programme brings together a debut feature film set in the Golan Heights starring two of Palestine's most celebrated performers, Ashraf Barhoum and Mohamed Bakri; a restored classic featuring Tilda Swinton as an extra-terrestrial who lands in Jordan; found footage that explores collective political pasts; a romantic quest, which was the first film ever filmed in the Gaza Strip; and filmmaker Samaher Alqadi’s personal journey from childhood to pregnancy as she reckons with the impact of the mass assaults on women in Tahir Square.
