Stadtbibliotheksvortragssaal. The word is so adorable long that its length alone should be a good reason to go and watch a movie there tonight. There, in the Stadtbibliotheksvortragssaal @Gasteig, Rosenheimerplatz, Munich.
Walaa! is screening there. Walaa! is a documentary film about an Israeli-Arab women-football player. She lives in the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel, she plays in Israel in the professional’s league, she used to be in the Israeli National Team and is now in the Palestinian National Team. She’s got an Israeli passport, is born and bred in Israel, never lived elsewhere but in Israel, has all her family there and will move there again after she finishes her studies in Jenin.
Checkpoints and borders dominate her life. But the real obstacles to overcome, are deep within the traditions of the Arab world.
Walaa! – Directed by: Noemi Schneider. Cinematography: Sanne Kurz.
