JENIN, JENIN


Directed by | Mohammed Bakri

Genre documentary  |  Length: 54mins  |  Year of production: 2002


Initially banned by the Israeli Film Board and still a source of controversy, Bakri's documentary bears witness to the aftermath of the April 2002 Israeli reconquest and partial demolition of the Jenin refugee camp. The documentary hears survivors presenting their own testimony and presents an often harrowing portrayal of a Palestinian community responding to trauma.

Winner – Carthage International Film Festival – Best Film, 2002
