A dramatic reimagining of the arrest of Palestinian artist Hani Zurob, Mars at Sunrise stars Ali Suliman (Body of Lies) as a man picked up by Israeli authorities and forced to ‘name’ artists sympathetic to Hamas. A story about creative jealously driving people in positions of power, the film’s powerful imagery provides the cover image of this year’s festival programme.

This film is nominated for the Best Soundtrack Award –  soundtrack produced by Tamir Muskat.

Part of the Palestine on Film event. Find info about tickets here.
