“Private” Film Screening with Activist George Rishmawi
September 26, 2006 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
Inspired by real events, documentary filmmaker Saverio Costanzo’s feature debut Private (2004) is a minimalist psychological drama about a Palestinian family of seven who are suddenly confronted with a volatile situation in their home that, in many ways, reflects the larger ongoing conflict between Palestine and Israel. Convincingly shot in a documentary style with a hand-held camera and a quick pace, Costanzo created a unique occasion for both Israeli and Palestinian actors to work together, and being an outsider himself, he has worked to maintain a neutral standpoint while dramatizing the conflict.
Presented with the Palestinian Rights Committee and Women Against War.
