Leeds Palestinian Film Festival: Hakawati, the Last Storytellers

Online Event
Group of children watching a puppet show
Dates and times

14 Nov 2020 - 28 Nov 2020

Online Event

Radi and Mounira are a 65-year-old couple of puppeteers who are setting off on their last tour between Israel and Palestine. We climb aboard with them on their hiccupping van to tour the roads of historic Palestine. In these now fragmented landscapes, the art of telling stories is a thread linking the various Palestine communities. Identity here is the object of the quest but at what cost? Like the Palestinian struggle, the couple have to face the sacrifices of their commitment, will their health and love survive?

"With us, resistance must be peaceful, cultural, human, sensitive … Artistic! "
Karim Dridi and Julien Gaertner (Directors)
