We are showing the film "We Are Here – Young Gaza on Stage" against the backdrop of the devastating war in Gaza. Especially now, we want to show people's lives in Gaza, to give "Gaza" a face or in this particular case the many faces of the actors, their stories and their longing for a life in peace, security and dignity.
"We Are Here – Young Gaza on Stage"
Documentary, Sabrina Dittus, Palestine/Germany, 2016, 55 Min., Ar./En. with En. ST
The film accompanies a group of young actors from the Ashtar Theater in Gaza, who are to perform their play "The Gaza Monologues" about the war experiences of teenagers for the first time in Ramallah in the West Bank. The play has already been performed by many other groups around the world, including at the UN headquarters in New York. Only the actors from Gaza were never able to show their own play anywhere else because they were not allowed to leave Gaza. The invitation to Ramallah presents a new opportunity.
After the film, which was produced in cooperation with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation's Palestine Office, a film discussion with the director Sabrina Dittus and Ali Al-Hasani, a member of the theater ensemble from Gaza, will take place.
We are looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday!
