Trip along Exodus

Hind Shoufani, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine 2015, 120 Min., OV with English subs
Followed by a talk with Nahed Awwad

Trip Along Exodus explores the last 70 years of Palestinian politics as seen through the prism of the life of the filmmaker’s father, Dr. Elias Shoufani. The leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and leftist academic was for 20 years one of the opposition leaders to Arafat within the Fatah Party. Hind Shoufani, living in the diaspora, is tracing the dignity, the free spirit and the resistance in the story of her father, revealing unknown sides of the Palestinian history.

Nahed Awwad is an Palestinian independent filmmaker who has been working in film and television since 1997. She has released eight documentary films ranging from experimental, short and feature length.
