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.

She first listened to Jennifer Hixson’s true story, whilst cooking. A live recording from The Moth, it played on NPR’s “This American Life”. Hixson’s spunky voice made her put the cooking spoon away, sit down and listen. Eventually, the story touched her so strongly, that New York City based director Tawnya Foskett decided, to turn the story in to a film. – Read where the film took Tawnya here.

As the film hits the festival circuit, we’re glad to announce that it will have its world-premiere in the town we shot the film in. Girls Who Smoke in Asbury Park @ The Garden State Film Festival this Saturday, March 24th. More info and tickets here.

Read a great interview with director Tawnya Foskett about her movie here. Become a Facebook fan of the movie here.

This October director Tawnya Foskett, whom with I worked before in Melbourne, will finally get together again. We’ll make Tawnya’s next film: Where there’s Smoke.  A film about two women with bad boyfriends and bad habits. Sounds like fun!
