Screwdriver San Diego AFF
6:20 PM, Saturday, April 13, AMC 20 Mission Valley
Directed by Bassam Jarbawi
Shot on location in the West Bank with an almost entirely Palestinian crew, Bassam Jarbawis feature debut is an important exploration of mental trauma, an invisible effect of the ongoing Occupation. Newly released Ziad doesnt recognize the world around him. He is a free man but his friends have moved on, technology has changed, and dating seems impossible. Though hailed as a hero for his involvement in a failed attack on a settler the act that led to his imprisonment the young Palestinian man has doubts about whether his actions had any real meaning. Now living back at home in Ramallah, Ziads attempts to adjust to life on the outside prove to be frustratingly slow. When he meets a young PalestinianAmerican filmmaker, it becomes clear Ziads problems arent just sociological, but also psychological. And with no real help to heal this unseen wound, it seems that he might end up exactly where he began.
When on-line ticket sales end, tickets will still be available at the door.
