Screening: 'Private'

Documentary film Palestinian/Israeli conflict

Screening – ‘Private’
Monday 21st March - 7.30pm
With an introduction by Saverio Costanzo, Film director
Film Duration – 95 minutes

Mohammad, his wife and their five children live in an isolated house located halfway between a Palestinian village and an Israeli settlement. The house finds itself in the crossfire of the two sides and soon becomes a strategic area watching point that the army decides to confiscate. Mohammed refuses to leave his house. Reinforced by his principles against violence, he decides to find a solution living together with the Israeli soldiers. Living in fear fragments the family relationship - every member reacts in different ways to the soldier's presence in the house and to the father's authority. Just when life seems to be getting back to normal, a new spiral of violence erupts…
