A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
"9 Star Hotel"
Documenting the struggle of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation for the right to live and work.
This unflinching documentary follows Ahmed and Muhammad, two of the many Palestinians who illegally cross the border into the Israeli city of Modi’in in search of work. Together they share food, belongings and stories, and live under the constant threat of imprisonment from Israeli soldiers and police. With raw, handheld images, this disconcerting yet touching film documents friendship, nostalgia and the uncompromising urge to survive. 2007, 78min., Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles.
(no one turned away for lack of funds)
Sponsored by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism)
