Everyday Nakba by Mohammad Al-Azza (2011, 12 min.). Water flows through the Aida Refugee Camp’s pipes only once every few weeks. This short chronicles everyday life without water.
Donor Opium by Mariam Shahin and George Azar (2011, 25 min.). Donor Opium takes a critical look at the impact of the past twenty years of international aid to Palestinian communities. The film explores whether the declared goals of all the support—peace and the establishment of a democratic Palestinian state—have been the actual result, or the exact opposite.
Sacred Stones by Muayad Alayan and Laila Higazi (2012, 52 min.). Natural stone is Palestine’s most in-demand natural resource, but the industry serves Israeli construction needs at the expense of its Palestinian owners. Inside villages, cities, and refugee camps, natural stone is unearthed at unsustainable rates leaving behind environmental, social, and health problems.
