The London Palestine Film Festival kicks off this month with a total of 16 days of events focusing on film and art curated by and inspired by Palestinians.
The Barbican on November 15 will open the night, with a screening of ‘It Must Be Heaven’ by award-winning filmmaker Elia Suleiman. The Cannes-garlanded film is a comic saga in which the protagonist struggles with questions exploring identity, nationality and belonging.
There will be multiple screenings at locations such as Curzon Soho, the ICA and the Rio. Many of the screenings are followed by Q&A sessions with the filmmakers and there will be panel events, too. The festival is designed to encourage ‘crucial dialogue regarding Palestine’s film industry, its culture and its politics’.
London Palestine Film Festival runs from Nov 15-30. Find out more info and book tickets here.
