Palestinian Film Days ’23
Screening of the film Stitching Palestine directed by Carol Mansour at 12:00 p.m. at the Faculty of Communication Sciences.
As international media, world leaders and major social media platforms engage in censorship and distortion of the narrative, while perpetuating the dehumanisation of Palestinians and their continued suffering, we extend our platforms in support of the forcibly cancelled Palestinian Film Days Festival.
On the darkest anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, signed on 2 November, and in an effort to amplify Palestinian voices, we will screen the film Weaving Palestine (Stitching Palestine, 2017) directed by Carol Mansour at 12:00 pm at the Faculty of Communication Sciences, at the north campus of the University of Santiago de Compostela.
The screening is free of charge.

Twelve women, twelve life-spans and stories from Palestine; a land whose position was fixed on the map of the world, but is now embroidered on its face.
