PROJECT ROZANA AND HADASSAH AUSTRALIA INVITE YOU TO A SPECIAL JIFF EVENT SCREENING OF MUHI: GENERALLY TEMPORARY AND POST FILM DISCUSSION
For the past seven years, Muhi, a young boy from Gaza, has been trapped in an Israeli hospital. Rushed there in his infancy with a life-threatening immune disorder, he and his doting grandfather, Abu Naim, wound up caught in an immigration limbo that made it impossible for them to leave the constraints of the hospital walls.
Caught between two states in perpetual war, Muhi is being cared for by the very same people whose government keeps his family marooned in Gaza. Made by two filmmakers from Jerusalem, this documentary lays out the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in human terms, charting the impact these paradoxical circumstances have upon individual lives.
Winner Best Debut Film at the 2017 DocAviv Film Festival,and nominated for Best Documentary at the 2017 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars).
