200 METERS, 2020
Jordan | HDD, Color, 96’ | Arabic, Hebrew, English
Director: Ameen Nayfeh
Cast: Ali Suliman, Anna Unterberger, Lana Zreik
Ameen Nayfeh’s first feature length film is Jordan’s nomination for the Oscars. Mustafa is a construction worker who lives on the Palestinian side of the West Bank, while his wife and family live on the other side, only 200 meters away. One day he finds out that his son is injured, but is not allowed to cross the border. He ends up starting off on a dangerous 200-kilometer journey with the help of a smuggler. The film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, is both a snapshot of the war-like daily life of Palestinians and an entertaining road film with a black humor flavor.
This film will be on view from March 4, 12.00 - March 6, 12.00.
