SMALL HANDS IN HANDCUFFS
We are honoured to present the Dublin premiere of the new film ‘Small Hands in Handcuffs’ by young director Anrai Carrol from Waterford, which will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
In October 2013, 16-year-old Anrai Carroll from Ireland travelled to Palestine to make a film on child arrests. With two tiny video cameras he went with his mum to the West Bank where he met and interviewed boys his own age to hear what its like to be arrested in the middle of the night by the Israeli Army and to live in fear of that knock on the door at 2am in the morning. The film charts not just the physical journey of 4,000km from Ireland to Palestine, but Anrai’s emotional journey from boy to young man.
STONE COLD JUSTICE
We will also be screening excerpts from ‘Stone Cold Justice, a recent episode of ABC Australia’s long-running current affairs TV show ‘Four Corners’ which reported on Palestinian children who’ve been taken into custody by Israeli occupation forces, ruthlessly questioned, threatened, and forced to sign confessions before being taken to court for sentencing.
