Screening of Little Palestine (Diary of a Siege)
In March, EED, together with ActionSyrie, hosted a screening in Brussels of the documentary Little Palestine (Diary of a Siege), and a post-screening discussion with Abdallah Al-Khatib, the film’s director, and Mohammad Ali Atassi, its producer and the director of former EED partner Bidayyat.
“When I decided to film life in the camp, I didn’t know I would make a documentary out of this footage. I didn’t even know if I would survive. I wanted to show human solidarity, I wanted to show how people want to keep living even in terrible circumstances. They want to laugh; they want to make music. They don’t just want to, they need to.”
