WHEN I SAW YOU

Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: WHEN I SAW YOU at Ealing Town Hall (02 NOV 19:30):

A Palestinian mother and son travel to a refugee camp in Jordan in 1967, where they struggle to fit in, and adjust to the restrictions and the waiting. Missing his father, the intelligent and curious boy finds company with a band of freedom fighters. There’s wonderful performances in this heartfelt coming of age film with a different perspective. It has been praised as “cinematic poetry – beautiful, groundbreaking and deeply, deeply moving” while the filmmaker “proves that she has become a leader in Palestinian contemporary cinema.”

Screened at many international film festivals, where it received several prizes from audiences, critics and juries; was named best film in the Arab, Asian and world cinema categories; and won best young actor and UNICEF awards.
