Full Title: "Kings and Extras: Digging for a Palestinian Image"

Azza el Hassan uses rare and 1970s and 1980s archival footage of the Palestinian national movement and a series of contemporary interviews with filmmakers, archivists and historians to explore the role of filmmaking and photography during this period. At the heart of the film is her search for answers as to the apparently mysterious ‘loss' of the central Palestinian cinema archive in Beirut during the Israeli occupation.
