Gaza on Screen Film Festival: To My Father (2008) directed by Adel Salam Shehada.

“Those were the days when girls were prettier, when eyes were in all colours, without any colour. What is
different now - the camera, or the eyes?” asks Abdel Salam Shehada’s poetic and mesmerizing homage
to the studio photographers of the 1950’s - 70’s. Set partly in a refugee camp in Rafah, this is a remarkable look back at fifty years of Palestinian and Arab history, through photographs, reportage and the voices of these photographers today.
Director in attendance.

Followed by Q&A with Abdel Salam Shehada, moderated by Joan Mandell
