Film Synopsis: Open Bethlehem

Director: Leila Sansour | Countries of production: Palestine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States | Year: 2014 | Length: 90 min
Language: English, French with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

Armed with her camera and a dilapidated family car that keeps breaking down, Bethlehem-born Leila Sansour returns to her childhood home to make a deeply personal film about a legendary town in crisis.

But just few months into the project, her life and the film take an unexpected turn when Leila’s cousin Carol, her last relative in town, persuades her to stay and start a campaign to save the city from irredeemable separation.


Beyond the Screen

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s Palestinian director Leila Sansour, in conversation with Trainspotting¬†author Irvine Welsh, and Kathy Galloway, director of Christian Aid Scotland.
