At the cinéma les 3 Luxembourg - 67 rue monsieur le prince 75006 paris
Middle East: What Cinema Can Do is proud to present 40 films over a 10-day period. As always the majority of them are documentaries, each painting a different facet of the bigger picture. There are many personal works from diaspora directors in search of family or identity, most notably the opening film by UK-based Mahdi Fleifel, A World Not Ours. There will be a couple of avant-premiers shown before being released in theatres and a certain number of the films are unveiling in France for the first time.

From the more than 150 films previewed, the films chosen illustrate the daily theme in which they will be shown, from Lebanon refugee camps to the cultural censorship in Iran, repression or revolution in countries like Syria, Egypt or Libyia, as well as the themes at the center of this event: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: notably occupation and spoliation.
