Eye on Palestine
For 9 days, Eye on Palestine turns the spotlight on inspiring films, concerts, and the performing and other arts – all linked to Palestine. The festival is a meeting place where both young and experienced artists can share their view of the reality in Palestine with the audience.
The fifth Eye on Palestine will take place at several Brussels venues: Théâtre Marni (28.03), CC Jacques Franck (29.03 & 05.04) and the KVS (30.03 > 04.04).
ON THE BRIDE'S SIDE
Antonio Augugliaro, Gabriele Del Grande, Khaled Soliman Al Nassiry
20:00, CC Jacques Franck
Documentary, 89', subtitled in French
When del Grande and el Nassiry meet a group of Syrians and Palestinians in Milan who escaped the Syrian war via Lampedusa, the idea is born to travel to Sweden with this group, pretending to travel to attend a wedding. The film recounts the story of this risky undertaking. Accompanied by a Palestinian friend in bridal dress and a dozen Italian and Syrian friends disguised as wedding guests, they embark on a trip of over 3,000 kilometers. On the way, we get to know the personal stories and the itineraries of each traveler and take a look at the cracks and locked doors of Fortress Europe.
