A documentary by Nitin Sawhney and Roger Hill, and coproduced with young filmmakers in Gaza, FLYING PAPER is an uplifting story of Palestinian youth on a quest to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most kites ever flown!
Co-filmmaker Roger Hill will introduce the film, and afterwards he and Middle East Children's Alliance staffer (and Palestinian refugee) will answer questions and give updates.
"Flying Paper promises to be one of those films that I will never forget."
