48mm Film Festival, original productions and screenings around the world
Zochrot’s annual 48mm Film Festival: From Nakba to Return brings together cinematic works dealing with the Nakba and the return of Palestinian refugees from various perspectives and in different times and places. Shedding new light on historical and contemporary events, the films encourage us to think about the place we live in as well as imagine its future differently.
48mm is traditionally held around November 29, this year marking the 72st anniversary of the UN Partition Plan. This plan has entrenched the concept of division and separation between Jews and Palestinians – a major milestone in the ongoing Nakba – and has played a key role in turning hundreds of thousands of Palestinians into refugees.
