Arna’s children

October 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Arna was an Israeli anti-occupation activist, married to a Palestinian, and the founder of the Jenin Refugee camp Freedom Theatre. The Arna’s Children film documents the return of Arna’s son to the refugee camp. He discovers that some of the playful children he knew, once gasping for cultural expression in a suffocated environment, were either killed by the Israeli army or joined the Palestinian armed resistance movement.


One of Arna’s Children that we follow in the film is Zakaria Zubaidi, who has recently made international headlines, together with other five Palestinian political detainees, upon their escape from the Israeli Gilboa prison.


The movie offers a bleak but poignant view into the life of Zubaidi and the future of Palestinian generations deprived of freedom.

Masahat, in collaboration with Palestinakomiteen and Kunstnernes Hus invite you to the film screening followed by a panel discussion on the role of culture and theatre in Palestine and conditions of Palestinian detention.
