THE TURTLE'S RAGE + Director Q&A

Dir: Pary El-Qalqili
Germany / 2012 / 70mins

Filmmaker Pary El-Qalqili's Palestinian father has always been an enigma to her, spending his days grieving the loss of his homeland in the basement of their Berlin home. Having left his young family behind in Europe in pursuit of the fight for a free Palestine when El-Qalqili was 12, he appeared back on their doorstep years later, tired, angry and withdrawn, having been expelled by Israel's security forces.

In this tender and astute portrait-come-road movie, El-Qalqili draws out a life marked by flight, exile and a longing for home. As father and daughter journey across the Middle East, El-Qalqili searches to understand the complexities of the Palestinian conflict, and her father's present day rage.

Director Pary El-Qalqili will join us for a post-screening Q&A via Skpe.
