[Belfast] Film Screening: ‘Where Should the Birds Fly’ + Q&A with the Director
Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead. Mona Samouni, now 12 years old and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, now 27, represent the spirit and future of Palestinians. The film is a visual documentation of the Goldstone Report. But it is so much more. It reveals the strength and hope, the humanity and humor that flourishes among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population.
“What an amazing woman. Such a powerful film.” –Audience member in California’
“Just returned a few days ago from a visit to Gaza. A memorable, in fact shattering, experience. And reveals graphically much of what your film describes.” -–Noam Chomsky
“There was a film showing, Where Should The Birds Fly. I thought I knew what was going on. Shocked as anybody could be at the appalling situation. We’ve heard a lot about the appalling situation, but the film says it all.”
–Michael Mansfield at the Russell Tribunal on Palestine.
