Eid milad Laila

Directed by Rashid Masharawi
Palestinian Territory, 2008
Drama

Life in an occupied territory is never easy, but who knew it could be so beautifully absurd? Drawing from everyday tales of contemporary Rashid Masharawi concentrates his focus on a single day, crafting a wry comedy about a father, his daughter and the chaos all around them.
