Leeds Palestinian Film Festival: When I Saw You

Online Event

Dates and times

14 Nov 2020 - 28 Nov 2020

Online Event

Warm, heartfelt drama, a story of the human spirit that knows no borders. 1967. The world is alive and ripe with possibility-new music, style, hope. But in Jordan, thousands of refugees from Palestine are held waiting for their right to return to their homeland. Amidst this, a young boy yearns to be reunited with his father. Restlessly cooped up in the refugee camp, he secretly sets out on his own, and along the way, attaches himself to a group of young freedom fighters who take him under their wing. Together, they embark on a journey of adventure, driven by an unshakeable resolve to be free. Find out more about Annemarie Jacir.

"Beautiful, groundbreaking and deeply, deeply moving."
Huffington Post

"One of the increasingly accessible range of works from Palestinian artists which should be seen because they are good art, not as acts of political solidarity…a joy to watch." 
Electronic Intafada

"Cinematic poetry, the perfect blend of stunning cinematography, humanly portrayed characters and a story that hits you with an immediate gut reaction, yet colors your dreams and inhabits your thoughts for days to come. "
Huffington Post
