Liwan-A Story of Cultural Resistance

by Doris Hakim , Spain, Greece 2021, 29’

Greek Premier

“Liwan” is about a “culture café” in Nazareth, which opened in 2016 when the old market of Nazareth was a no-go area, run down following an Israeli “redevelopment” project. Despite many difficulties, they opened, and many new cultural spaces have followed, driving a revival of the souq. They practise ‘cultural resistance’, organising activities that focus on the Palestinian identity.
