THE ARREST

Drama, Action
This is a film about occupation and creation; a story deconstructing reality, telling a realistic tale about a different Middle East. In an alternative reality the Palestinian army is the occupier, and Palestinian directors make leftist and successful action films to deal with the trauma they experienced in the army.

Screening as part of Shorts: Family Dynamics
