MAN WITHOUT A CELL PHONE
Sameh Zoabi / 2011 / Drama / 83min
+ Director Q&A
When a curmudgeonly Palestinian-Israeli olive-farmer wages a struggle against a cell phone antenna built on village lands, he disrupts his slacker son’s own phone reception, jeopardising his dating prospects and setting the pair on a comic collision course.
‘… A welcome addition to the remarkable breadth of Palestinian filmmaking’
Screening followed by Q&A with the director.
