The Drew MSA is excited to host a night of the Palestinian Film Festival. We will be showing the movie "Private."
The synopsis for the film: Mohammad, his wife and their five children live in a large, isolated house located mid-way between a Palestinian village and an Israeli settlement. Viewed as a strategic lookout point, the house is forcefully taken over by Israeli soldiers, who confine Mohammad and his family to a few downstairs rooms in daytime and a single room at night. Against his wife’s wishes, Mohammad decides to keep the family together in the house until the soldiers move on,
creating division among his kin and a precarious relationship with the soldiers.
Directed by Saverio Costanzo
