Nūn Wa Zaytun
A very unique Palestinian movie takes us on a road trip with a cinema-lover to see Palestine and hear old and recent stories told by real people. No blood!
While listening to the stories of the people Murad meets with his Mobile Cinema, trekking from one venue to another in his “green camel”, Nūn wa Zaytūn transports us to another Palestine. We encounter a simple rural life, far from the cultural and social stereotypes of modern, urban Ramallah or Tel Aviv, only kilometers away.
These scattered communities come together for a moment to watch films shot in Palestine over 20 years and in which some of them even acted. This moment of communal harmony and artistic pleasure contrasts rudely with the bitter realities they face in coping with encroaching settlements, the attrition of ancestral land and the daily brutalities of occupation and poverty.
