About this Event

We are so excited to have the first screening of {Misunderstanding of Palestine} new series followed by a Q&A with actor and director Nour Alkawaja.

A comedy series dedicated to breaking down the misconceptions associated with the Palestinians.

The show takes on the style and format of a mockumentary, weaving fictional comedic characters with real Palestinian based in Palestine and various different countries around the world.

The story is about a company based in the west bank known as ‘Occupied Nation Tourism’ who are on a quest to encourage travel and tourism to Palestine.

The series mirrors the struggles and strive the Palestinians have had to endure living under occupation and takes look at the diaspora community as well.

The show uses comedy as a vehicle to tackle conflict and embodies characters playing the role of the fool to personify man’s idiocy and satirize extremist thought that divides people and communities.

AWAN Festival is produced by Arts Canteen and supported by Arts Council England.
