They came in the morning
Many of us would like to find ways of getting "marginal" issues into the mainstream. There is one short film which is in with a shot. The film is called 'they came in the morning' by Leila Sansour, who spoke at the Bristol Palestine Film Festival in 2011.‘More 25,000 trees were uprooted to build a wall around Bethlehem. This is not fiction, this is true’.
This is the closing title sequence of the film, which captures the reaction of Walaja – a Palestinian farmer as he discovers that his livelihood has been felled, with no prior warning or idea of why.
If the film wins, it will be shown for a year in cinemas all over the country and beyond (including on Virgin flights) and will be entitled to a further prize, one of which, will again be selected by the public.
The film: 'They came in the morning' is a very touching true story. It is unusual for a film like this to be out there against other more commercial films. Please support it. The deadline is this Thursday 19 July.
