THE JOURNEY OF THE OTHERS

EL VIAJE DE LOS OTROS

2019, Jaime Villarreal, Chile/Jordan/Palestine, 74 min.
STREAMING 10/4 - 24 hrs. only!

The cast and crew of Jenin’s Freedom Theater prepares for a risky trip to New York to stage their banned play The Siege, a harrowing drama of six freedom fighters holed up in Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity. The planned U.S. tour dwindles to a premiere at NYU after other venues back out, and their stage manager is deported in chains upon arrival. The filmmaker parallels these events with a little boy’s symbolic journey to a place safe from violence through the camp’s theater and arts program for children. Preceded by 3 MINUTES (2019, Dima Sharif, UK/Palestine, 4 min.), and THE PIPE (2019, Sami Zarour, Palestine, 10 min.). In English, Arabic, and Hebrew with English subtitles. (BS)
