February 2022 screenings: “Fedayin: Georges Abdallah’s Fight”

The busy schedule of  “Fedayin: Georges Abdallah’s Fight” is continuing in February 2022, with Collectif Vacarme(s) Films participating in 14 screenings already planned.

The film traces the life story and struggle of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, a tireless struggler for Palestine and an Arab Communist revolutionary, imprisoned in France for over 37 years. “Fedayin” travels with Georges from the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, where his political consciousness was formed and developed, to the international mobilization for his release. Today, he is one of the longest-held political prisoners in Europe.

The film is available with appropriate subtitles in French, Arabic, English, German, Italian, Catalan, Castilian Spanish and Turkish. If you want to show Fedayin in your area, email us at samidoun@samidoun.net and contact the directors at vacarmesfilms@gmail.com. We will help you to get your screening organized, and the directors are available to attend your events in person or to join your in-person events via video link.
