Opening Night: Tomorrow's Freedom (18*) + ScreenTalk

London Palestine Film Festival

A group of people sit in a room in front of a camera during an interview.

Marwan Barghouti is serving five life sentences in Israeli prison; Tomorrow’s Freedom captures his story, and the tireless spirit of a people fighting for justice.

Over 5 years, Georgia and Sophia Scott followed the family of imprisoned Palestinian political leader and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Marwan Barghouti. The resulting film shares the struggles of his hunger strikes, brought on by harsh prison conditions and the desire to make a stand. The film also shows painful prison visits, often ending with the family being turned away at the last moment.

A collage of interviews with the people who know him best, the film paints a powerful portrait of a man who may one day lead the Palestinian people.

The screening will be followed by a screen talk with directors Georgia and Sophia Scott, producer Sawsan Asfari and lawyer Nimer Sultany. Hosted by Daniel Levy.
