Mother of Palestine, Um Falastin

Year: August 2007
Location: The Freedom Theatre, Jenin Refugee Camp, Jenin
Duration: 5:39 min

Synopsis: The story illustrates a comical situation where three brothers individually try to entice their mother to vote for their own political party (Hamas, Fateh and PFLP) in the upcoming Palestinian elections. The film humorously explores the subject of sectarian divisions fragmenting Palestinian society in recent times, and a mother’s insistence on the strength of Palestinian unity despite it all.

Filmmakers: Amani Omar, Osama Hasan, Ahmad Hassan, Anas Ahmad, Mohammed Mouwia
