Ciné Résistance - The Palestinian Cause: "A World Not Ours" by Mahdi Fleifel + Q&A w. Ahmed AlRokh
Ciné Résistance at soso: The Palestinian Cause
soso.space launches a new format: Ciné Résistance.
On Tuesday evenings, soso.space will be screening motion pictures and documentaries viewing global history, issues and causes from the perspective of the oppressed, starting on 30 January with a film series about Palestine and the Palestinian cause.
The movies and documentaries shown will all be selected and – if possible - presented by people affected by the cause. We hope to create a space, where people affected, their allies and people interested to understand history and context of ongoing issues can meet. The bar will stay open after the movie screenings and offer space for discussions for everyone who wants to stay for a drink.
These movie screenings are Soli-events. Every contribution to run the event is voluntary. The collected funds at the door will be going to an organization related to the cause shown in the screening in full. The bar revenue will be used to pay for the expenses of the event.
Ciné Résistance wants to provide a safer space for people to come together, talk, share thoughts or just watch a movie and get inspired. We certainly encourage SWANA-people to join.
Ciné Résistance is preparing a list of links and information about Palestine/Gaza and the ongoing genocide in order to give people the possibility to educate themselves if required. Until further notice, the evenings on the topic of Palestine are taking place on a weekly basis.
soso.space will provide a bar at low cost, tea and snacks for free. Before and after the screening, curated music will be played, selected by artists close to the cause.
"A World Not Ours" by Mahdi Fleifel (93 min)
For most of us, our identity is taken for granted - who we are, where we come from, and what we are is rarely questioned. Not for the Palestinians, who are constantly required to show proof of identity, while their existence as native inhabitants of a land which no longer exists is perpetually denied or challenged. A WORLD NOT OURS is an intimate, and often humorous, portrait of three generations of exile in the refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh, in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal recordings, family archives, and historical footage, the film is a sensitive and illuminating study of belonging, friendship, and family. Filmed over more than 20 years by multiple generations of the same family, A WORLD NOT OURS is more than just a family portrait; it is an attempt to record what is being forgotten, and mark what should not be erased from collective memory.
Q&A and discussion with Ahmed AlRokh
The documentary A WORLD NOT OURS will be presented by Ahmed AlRokh. Born and raised in Jenin Camp, West Bank, he has spent most of his life living as a refugee on his own land. After the documentary screening, Ahmed AlRokh will discuss questions around the situation&issues of Palestinian refugees in- and outside of Palestine as well as the ways the different generations and individuals have been coping with the experienced injustice in their life.
