The Mobile Cinema Visits Bedouin Communities

From May 2nd – 23rd our mobile cinema project is running a programme of 15 film screenings to 15 different Bedouin communities across the West Bank in collaboration with UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) and ECHO.

The programme is designed to raise communities’ awareness and resilience to the forced displacement that they are experiencing, while also enhancing the cohesion and mobilisation within the communities themselves. We will be showing some entertainment films – shorts and animations – followed by one or two educational documentaries about human rights, minority rights, and Bedouin communities in the Middle East or elsewhere facing similar issues, with the aim to open up discussion and debate following each screening.

Check out our screening schedule on our PROGRAMME page, and keep your eyes peeled here for updates and pictures of the project in action!
