San Diego Arab Film Festival to Screen The Tower at Special Fall Screening on November 2, 2019
On November 2, the San Diego Arab Film Festival will present a special screening of The Tower, a beautifully animated film that tells the story of Wardi, a young Palestinian girl who lives with her family in the Lebanese refugee camp where she was born. Her beloved great-grandfather, Sidi, was one of the first people to settle in the camp after being exiled from his home and homeland, Palestine, in 1948. When Sidi gives Wardi the key to his old house back in the Galilee, she fears he may have lost hope of someday returning home. As she searches for Sidi’s lost hope around the camp, she collects her family’s testimonies, from one generation to the next. An uplifting film that captures the story of Palestine through four generations.
Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Mats Grorund, the film took 8 years to make and is based on his experience of living for a year in the Burj el Barajneh refugee camp near Beirut where he taught English and animation. To see photos of set design and construction, click here.
