Leeds Palestinian Film Festival: The Tower
A child’s perspective on the adult world, beautifully woven in animation, cartoons & photos. Norwegian Director Grorud spent a year culling stories at a Beirut refugee camp. From them, he crafted the tale of Wardi, a smart, shy 11-year-old who was born in the camp and represents the fourth generation of her family living there. Wardi’s beloved great-grandfather Sidi gives her a key that she should take good care of in the future. Because Wardi wants to help Sidi and give him back his hope, she begins to ask questions about the past.
"Filled with moments of bittersweet humor and shreds of hope"
