  FLYING         PAPER documents a spectacular quest by Palestinian children in         the Gaza Strip to break the World Record for the most kites ever flown.         Co-produced with young Palestinians trained by the filmmakers through a         youth media programme (Voices         Beyond Walls), the film is a celebration of creative         resilience. Scored by the co-director’s namesake, renowned British         composer Nitin Sawhney, Flying         Paper mixes animated sequences with breathtaking footage of         the record-breaking bid and warm portraits of the film’s protagonists.                  A captivating journey into Gazan kite culture – borne aloft by the         playful humour and indomitable spirit of the kiteflyers themselves!

     A         SPACE EXODUS adapts a passage of Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey, following         the director on a phantasmagorical journey through the stars – the         first Palestinian into space. Sansour’s moon-landing evokes Armstrong’s         (“a small step for a Palestinian, a giant leap for mankind”), but this         witty short touches on experiences of displacement and statelessness as         much as it does those of space travel or moon-landings…
