Angel of Gaza ملاك غزة
Directed by Ahmad Mansour
(Palestine-US 2022, 23 min, in Arabic and English with subtitles)

A Gaza Weekend was selected as the opening film for the 16th annual festival. A highly anticipated film by Oscar nominated producer Basil Khalil, this dark comedy highlights the bitter reality of life in Gaza between blockade and war. In the film, Gaza becomes a haven and the safest place in the world after an infectious virus spreads across the globe. Gaza’s isolation has left it free of disease and the envy of many trying to escape the disease by any means. Action and comedy shed light on the block. It stars Mouna Hawa, Adam Barki and Stephen Mangan.”
