“Love, Theft, and Other Entanglements”: The Film They Don’t Want You To See!

April 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for week TWO of our [CENSORED] Movie Marathon, a series of weekly film screenings hosted by Justice for Palestine and the Harvard Law Documentary Studio.

Love, Theft and Other Entanglements is a universal story of an anti-hero and his journey towards redemption. The lead character (Mousa) is neither the Palestinian national ideal typically found in many Palestinian films nor the pure victim of the occupation who is otherwise a perfect manifestation of good. He is not the typical antithesis of that either. He is not a national traitor or an Israeli collaborator. In fact, Mousa wants nothing to do with politics even though politics inadvertently come his way. He is an imperfect human being with many dislikeable traits. He is a car thief running away from his troubled past; a love affair tragically ruined by his actions. He steals to bribe a way out of the country and away from his wrecked past. But his actions only get him into deeper trouble.

This event is made possible by the generous contributions of [CENSORED] LLP and the DOS Grant Fund, though [CENSORED] does not necessarily endorse the views expressed in this program.
