Open Bethlehem film screenings

Film director Leila Sansour has made this remarkable film about her home town, Bethlehem. Having left the city as a teenager, she returned to make a film about the town in crises, encircled by the Israeli wall…what happens next is the story of  a homecoming to the world’s most famous little town.

The film spans seven momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing beauty and political strife under occupation. The film draws from 700 hours of original footage and some rare archive material.

“A fierce and heartfelt plea against the incarceration of a city”.

“One of the most remarkable and moving documentaries I have seen, about this unreported story. The tragedy of the Palestinians encapsulated in the life of one town – Bethlehem. See the film, then go to Bethlehem and see for yourself.” Jon Snow
