VENICE DAYS - Giornate degli Autori

HABIBI (HABIBI RASAK KHARBAN) by Susan Youssef (Debut Film)
World Premiere

In 7th century Arabia lived the great poet of love Qays. Today the walls of Gaza are covered with the words of his poems, transcribed by a young Palestinian who claims his impossible love for the woman he wants to marry. Prisoners in the open air, imprisoned by the logic of social conventions and policies that ignore them, the two boys seek freedom.

HABIBI is a minority co-production between The Netherlands (S.Y. Films), USA, United Arab Emirates and Palestine.
