it’s a co-presentation with Workers for Palestine

In his directorial debut, LITTLE PALESTINE, DIARY OF A SIEGE (2021, EN Subs, 89 min), filmmaker Abdallah Al-Khatib offers a glimpse into the daily life of the residents of Yarmouk, the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the world. Home to thousands of Palestinians, Yarmouk was seized in 2015 by ISIS/Daesh in alliance with al-Nousra. Syrian government forces retaliated to the siege with indiscriminate shelling of the camp that provoked widespread outcry against the loss of civilian lives and the destruction of the refugee camp. Yarmouk was cut off from electricity, leaving Palestinian refugees in an even more vulnerable and embattled state. With the help of his friends, Al-Khatib portrays the ordinary lives of Yarmouk‘s residents in the years leading up to the siege, as they persevere with dignity, love and hope amid a never-ending state of war.
