6 september Amsterdam documentaire Yalla! Yalla!

Van 20:00 tot 22:00 uur vertoont Pakhuis de Zwijger in samenwerking met Ontmoet Palestina en docP de documentaire Yalla! Yalla!

A film about seven people who try to overcome the difficulties in present-day Palestine while playing football.

As the Israeli occupation of Palestine continues, the slogan ‘Existence is resistance’ remains a necessary one today. The film focuses on the story of seven Palestinians who are connected to the world of football.

Through their daily lives the audience gets to know in detail their bond with the sport, their activities and the problems they have to face as their daily lives are constantly affected by Israel’s subjugation of Palestine. However, these individuals still manage to survive and endure all sorts of problems with dignity in order to enjoy one of their biggest passions: football.
