LawTransform in cooperation with BIFF invites you to an exclusive screening of the award-winning documentary SAMOUNI ROAD (2018). After the screening there will be an informal discussion and reflection of the documentary. 

ABOUT THE DOCUMENATRY 

Even though the Gaza Strip is constantly in the news, the stories being told are usually stories of suffering and tragedy rather than stories about people. With SAMOUNI ROAD Stefano Savona seeks to rectify this by giving us a multifaceted portrayal of a family one year after Israeli armed forces killed 29 men, women and children in their neighbourhood. Combining interviews, reconstructed drone footage and dreamlike animated sequences, the documentary conveys the humanity of the people of Gaza in a way that makes their lives relatable on a deeply personal level. 

Free and open to all! 

The event is part of the Bergen Exchanges on Law & Social Transformation 2018. #BeEx2018
