We have a very special announcement today!
Hurdle will celebrate its International Premiere on October 7, 2019 in Ramallah, West Bank (Palestine)! We are so honored to not only be and Official Selection of this year’s Palestine Cinema Days, but to be nominated for their Sunbird Award for Documentary Features.
“The name of the award refers to the Palestine Sunbird, a small bird of 8-12cm height. This bird is able to cope with overcrowded urban concrete buildings, in addition to the crawling desert. It has been forced to live in a different environment that the one it was used to live in - an environment that has green forests.”
For us, to share our film for the first time outside of the U.S. with the community that has inspired us to start this journey four years ago, is something so special. All along, we’ve seen our characters as heroes, overcoming obstacles and leading others to find freedom and dignity. And now we are so happy that they will get to sit and watch themselves on the big screen, surrounded by friends, family and the rest of Palestine. Director, Michael Rowley, will be in attendance as well as the main characters from the film and other crew who helped make this film a reality.
Inshallah, we will see you in Palestine on October 7.
Full Festival Dates: October 2-9, 2019
