Private

Directed by Saverio Costanzo

The house of a Palestinian family is invaded and then requisitioned by the Israeli army. Rather than abandon their home, the father convinces his family to inhabit one room whilst the occupiers claim the rest. This act of silent resistance leads to turmoil on both sides that threatens to erupt into violence. A tense political drama, PRIVATE was shot on neutral territory to allow Palestinian and Israeli actors to act together.‘Thought-provoking and relentlessly compelling’ www.channel4.comCORNERHOUSE 20TH BIRTHDAY; THE AUDIENCE CHOICE
