To My Father

Gaza Surf Club PosterThose were the days when girls were prettier, when eyes were in all colours, without any colour. What's Different now - the camera, or the eyes?" asks Abdel Salam Shehadah's poetic and mesmerizing homage to the studio photographers of the 1950's - 70's. Set partly in a refugee camp in Rafah, this is a remarkable look back at fifty years of Palestinian and Arab history, through photographs, reportage and the voices of these photographers today.
To My Father is a deeply personal and moving film that confirms the talent of Gaza-born director Shahadah, who having worked all over the world as a director, cameraman and journalist, recently turned to fimmaking. A photo here is not just a photo: it brings history to life.

The To My Father will be shown on:

Tuesday, January 8, at 7:00 p.m.
