Event description

Description

Avenge but one of my two eyes is one of the great essayistic films of modern times’ - Mark Cousins

Shot in the Occupied Territories by Israeli director Avi Mograbi, this controversial documentary film draws parallels between the Israeli-Palestinian situation today and the enduring myths of Samson and Masada. Mograbi offers a powerful, at times chilling, lament of the continuing cycles of violence rooted in the past and threatening to engulf everyone's future. With the roots of so much real-world conflict left unexamined by today's restless media, this film reminds us just how vital filmmakers like Avi Mograbi are.

The film will be presented by Palestinian doctor, activist and writer Ghada Karmi, and the evening will be hosted by Gareth Evans.
