3000 Nights - Postponed due to Corona Virus - new date to be annouced

Directed and written by: Mai Masri. Palestine, France, Jordan, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, 2015 Arabic, Hebrew 103 minutes

Cover for A Stone's Throw Away

Mai Masri makes her feature debut with the powerful and deeply political 3000 Nights. In Nablus, West Bank in 1980, a young schoolteacher is arrested in the middle of the night and accused of being an accomplice in an attack on a settler, as she had by chance given a ride to the actual perpetrator, a young boy. Sentenced to eight years, she enters prison determined to survive, both for herself and, as she soon finds out, her unborn child. Based on interviews with real-life prisoners, Masri's script sheds light on the plight of thousands of Palestinians who have been wrongly convicted.
