music video by Shadia Mansour filmed in occupied Palestine “Al Kufiyyeh 3arabeyyeh”
Official music video for the single “Al Kufiyyeh 3arabeyyeh” (The Kufiyeh is Arab) by celebrated Palestinian hip-hop artist Shadia Mansour, featuring M1 of Dead Prez. Video shot and edited by Nana Dankwa.
For Israeli Apartheid Week 2012 this video will show at the Cinema Politica screening of Tears of Gaza. Disturbing, powerful and emotionally devastating, Tears of Gaza is less a conventional documentary than a record – presented with minimal gloss – of the 2008 to 2009 bombing of Gaza by the Israeli military. Photographed by several Palestinian cameramen both during and after the offensive, this powerful film by director Vibeke Løkkeberg focuses on the impact of the attacks on the civilian population.
