Though I Know The River is Dry by Omar Robert Hamilton (Egypt, 2013, 19 min.) A young Palestinian man caught between his brother's past and his child's future makes a choice that triggers catastrophe for his family. Cutting between documentary footage of the occupation and the fictional story, the film breaks with traditional storytelling in favor of a fragmented structure that expresses the difficult choices the protagonist must make.
Ismail by Nora Alsharif (Jordan, 2013, 28 min.). A short film inspired by a day in the life of Palestinian painter Ismail Shammout.
Panel discussion on Palestinian narratives follows films. Speakers: Omar Robert Hamilton, Nora al-Sharif, Susan Abulhawa.
