Wednesday, May 1, 6:00 p.m. | YALLAH GAZA explores historical and geopolitical aspects, Palestinian politics, International Law and records. The film bears witness to their “fury to live” and the daily struggle that keeps despair at bay as Palestinians pass this flame, their culture and their land, from one generation to the next. Preceded by LE RÉEL QUI ME DÉPASSE/THE REALITY THAT SURPASSES ME (2023, dir. Jihen Sebai, 8 min.).
