‘You are stronger than you think, trust me.’
A young Palestinian woman crosses the Israeli border illegally to find her long-lost brother, discovering the truth behind his exiled existence.
More Films for Freedom programme saw three new films made by British producers working in partnership with Syrian, Palestinian and South African filmmakers. The first three films were made available online throughout summer 2020. At a time when many Pride celebrations were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the films were screened as a way of linking and celebrating LGBTIQ+ communities everywhere.
A second round of More Films For Freedom was announced at the end of 2020 and three films were commissioned from UK producers working in partnership with filmmakers of Nigerian, Libyan and South African heritage. The films are currently enjoying a successful festival journey taking in Toronto International Film Festival, Sundance, and BFI London Film Festival, as well as finding huge awards success, nominated for a British Independent Film Award (BIFA) and winning Iris Prizes.
The programme has been commissioned by the British Council.
