From Amman to Gaza... with Hope
Karama Human Rights Film Festival has organized its mid-cycle event in Gaza – ‘’From Amman to Gaza… with hope’’ – in cooperation with ‘Lama Film Group’ headed by the film director, Khalil Elmozayen and in collaboration with other film directors and cultural practitioners in Gaza. During the event, a number of human rights themed films of all genres have been screened.
Intersecting with the ‘’World Day of Social Justice’ on February 20, 2015, the event is devoted to the people of Gaza who continue to live under inhuman conditions caused by the occupation measures including the blockade imposed since 2007 which created dreadful life conditions as well as three consecutive wars that damaged the Gaza Strip infrastructure and left a large number of injured, disabled and dead.
‘’From Amman to Gaza … with Hope’’ is organized to shed light on the harsh living conditions in Gaza and of Gazans and to pose a strong statement of condemnation of the cruel opposition imposed by the Israeli Occupation on a whole nation.
This outreach program is partially funded by ‘’Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC)’’ and organized by Karama Human Rights Film Festival and Ma3mal 612-Think Factory.
