About this Event
The Galilee Foundation are delighted to be hosting a one-off online screening of the Oscar shortlisted short film The Present, by acclaimed British/ Palestinian film maker Farah Nabulsi.
The Present, which premiered at the end of 2020, stars Saleh Bakri and Maryam Kanj and is about a father and his young daughter, who sets out to buy an anniversary gift against the backdrop of a reality that includes soldiers, segregated roads and checkpoints.
The emotional film has picked up numerous audience and jury awards as it continues with film festivals around the world. It has now been short listed for the Oscars 2021, and long listed for the BAFTAs 2021.
Our online screening offers attendees the chance to take part in an exclusive Q&A session with the director herself, plus all donations will go towards supporting Palestinian students and empowering them through education.
Suggested donation: £10
Film: 24 mins 20 seconds
Q&A: 30 minutes
