Gaza on Screen Film Festival: Paper Boat (2017) directed by Mahmoud Abu Ghalwa.

A shelter in Gaza during a bombing. A young couple waits in the small claustrophobic room. She is pregnant, but how can she give life to a human being
in these conditions? The future father is lost in the memories of his childhood.
A reflection on freedom, slavery and surrender, sustained by a pressing emotional tension.
Director in attendance.

Followed by Q&A with Mahmoud Abu Ghalwa, moderated by Hamid Dabashi
