MEM Summer Summit - screening of the movie "Zindeeq " by Michel Khleifi (2009)

Media and Communication Service

Date: / -

USI Auditorium, Lugano campus

Acclaimed director Michel Khleifi's story of a Palestinian film-maker 'M' living in Europe, who returns home to Ramallah to film witness accounts of the 1948 Nakba - not only explores the events of that tumultuous era, but places them in context with the uncertainty and tension of present-day Palestine. Over the course of a single day and night, M's solipsistic existence is shaken when his nephew kills a man in Nazareth, placing the entire family at risk of reprisals. This masterful feature - a quietly witty, complex and occasionally surreal depiction of an exile's relationship with Palestine - marks a new direction in Khleifi's work.

In Arabic, with English subtitles.

Free admittance, subject to registration: mem@usi.ch
