Wednesday, May 10 at 6:00pm | WAITING FOR GAZA follows Arab and Tarzan Abu Nasser to the heart of their twinship, their history of what both haunts them and pushes them to do cinema. Little by little, their life and work merge as the line between reality and fiction fades away, blurring the tracks. Preceded by A TRIP TO THE MOTHERLAND (2022, dir. Ali Abushama, 3 min.), BOREKAS (2020, dir. Saleh Saadi, 15 min.), and LAST MAY IN PALESTINE (2022, dir. Rabeea Eid, 20 min.).
