About the film:

Paradise Now is the multi-award-winning 2005 film directed by Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad about two Palestinian men preparing for a suicide attack in Israel. It won a Golden Globe for best foreign language film and was nominated for an Academy Award in the same category, making it the the first Palestinian film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

“The film is an artistic point of view of that political issue,” Abu-Assad said. “The politicians want to see it as black and white, good and evil, and art wants to see it as a human thing.”

One thought on “Paradise Now screening

  1. Thank you for your info, I would like to attend the event. I want to know more about the current situation in Palestine.

    Is it possible for someone not study in University of Alberta to attend the event?
