Irregulars by Fabio Palmieri

Documentary | Duration 8:55 | In English with English captions

Against a tellingly hypnotic factory backdrop, a refugee encapsulates the global immigration crisis in his own wrenching words. Each year, thousands of people try to enter other countries. They flee from war, persecution and poverty.

Measures of Uncertainty by Jawad Al Malhi

Documentary | Duration 4:28 | No dialogue

Measures of Uncertainty was shot in Shufhat Refugee Camp, in occupied East Jerusalem. The camp has a population of over 100,000 people and is situated less than 5km from the walls of the old city of Jerusalem. Filmmaker Al Malhi has himself grown up in the camp and has continually tasked himself with creating representations of the everyday life of his community through photography, video, painting and sculpture.

Dahiet Al Bareed, District of the Post Office ​by ​Turner Prize shortlisted artist Rosalind Nashashibi

Duration 7:00

One slow, hot afternoon in a neighborhood built to be a utopian suburb for employees of the Palestinian Post Office; now becomes a lawless no-man’s-land between occupied East Jerusalem and Ramallah.

Speaking for Oneself…Speaking for Others.. Maqaddimah Li-Nihayat Jidal (Introduction to the End of an Argument) by Jayce Solloum and Elia Suleiman

Duration: 45:00

With a combination of film, documentary, news coverage and excerpts of “live” footage shot in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Introduction To The End Of An Argument explores representations of the Middle East, Arab culture and the Palestinian people by the West.
