Immigrants in European Cinema Film Festival - 2002

A spot On Critical Affair

To The Spirit of Hussein Barghouthi

European countries have witnessed an increasing interest in the issue of immigrants during the past few year’s, stories about different lobbies and political parties asking to limit this phenomenon and to prohibit immigration are now heard so often. In Palestine, on the other hand, the case of the Palestinian refugees is considered one of the most important points of disagreement in the Arab Israeli conflict, and it is still an insoluble controversy.
Al Kasaba Theatre and Cinematheque intends to present through the “ Immigrants in European Cinema Festival “ an outlet to the Palestinian audience where it introduces them to the problems and conflicts the immigrants face in the Diaspora, especially in Europe. It also intends to encourage discussions over this issue through displaying a chosen selection of European films that tackles this issue in the festival.

The festival will open with the Palestinian film “ Half Century of Diaspora “ for the Director Mohammad El Swalmeh. The Festival will also show a number of Palestinian films that were produced during the Israeli incursion of the West Bank cities in March 28,2002.

Through this manifestation, Al Kasaba Theatre and Cinematheque would like to thank all the consulates, representative offices and European Cultural Centers that contributed to the achievement of this Festival. We would like to specifically thank the Turkish Consulate for their cooperation and Europa Cinemas for their constant support for Al Kasaba.

Last but not Least .. We would like to stress here the importance of sustaining the cultural and artistic life in Palestine in spite of the hardships the Palestinian people are currently living through, following the words of the cherished late Palestinian poet Hussein Bargouthi “ Hope is Power “…..
