Cinema Jenin – Little White Lies, July/August 2010

The West Bank town of Jenin, spitting distance from the Israeli border, hasn’t been on the receiving end of great deal of goodwill over the past few decades. But this August, after some sizeable international donations and hundreds of hours of volunteer work, the town’s only cinema, closed during the first Intifada in 1987, is set to reopen. I visited the cinema in April 2010, and this feature appeared in the rather awesome film magazine Little White Lies.
