London Palestine Film Festival 2023
Join us for our selection of recently released titles alongside favourites from the archives, focusing on issues related to Palestine.
This year’s programme brings together a strong selection of films, looking at serious issues through the creative lens of cinema. We open with the intimate documentary feature Tomorrow’s Freedom, building a powerful picture of political prisoner Marwan Barghouti.
The spotlight is on the filmmaking twins, Arab and Tarzan Nasser as we follow them to the heart of their twinship in Waiting for Gaza, five years after their Cannes nomination for Dégradé.
In Gaza, two hairdressers and their eclectic clients spend the day trapped in a beauty salon while Hamas, a gang, and a lion fight it out in the street.
LPFF: Waiting for Gaza
A peek into the unusual world of Arab and Tarzan Nasser; Waiting for Gaza tells the story of what haunts the twin-filmmakers and what pushes them to create cinema.

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.
