About

Created by Palestinian artists as a response to the conflict in their homeland, Alive from Palestine: Stories Under Occupation by Ramallah's Al-Kasaba Theater & Cinematheque has been called "heartfelt and witty" by Variety, while the New York Times declares it to be "poignant" and "quite touching." From beneath a mountain of newspapers, a host of Palestinian characters appear, each with a compelling tale of the truth behind the headlines: from a youth with aspirations for Hollywood, to an old man living under continual occupation, to a son calling home from abroad, to a mother losing a child, and the plight of young lovers. Together, these stories of ordinary life lived in the most extraordinary circumstances put a human face to the Palestinian experience as told by actors from the only professional multi-purpose venue in the Palestinian territories. Performed in Arabic with English surtitles.
