The film festival favourite will be screened at the Al Quoz art space Traffic

  • Text by Simone Sebastian

Julia Bacha's 2009 documentary film "Budrus" is a favourite of the Dubai film community. The film made its festival debut at the Dubai Film Festival, a debut that was immediately followed by screenings in Madrid, Bergen, Jerusalem, San Francisco, Berlin and Tribeca - to name just a few. Bacha's measured and non-biased depiction of a West Bank town's reaction to Israel's construction of the security barrier has won numerous accolades including a Special Jury Mention at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival.

Tomorrow, the film makes a triumphant return to Dubai with a screening at Traffic, the contemporary art space in the art district of Al Quoz. The event has been organized by Community Cinema, a non-profit organisation that promotes social change through film screenings. Tomorrow's screening of the film will be followed by a talk with Ramzi Jaber, who recently organized TEDx Ramallah. 

The film screening of Budrus, followed by a talk with Ramzi Jaber of TEDxRamallah takes place Wednesday, October 5 @
