Solomon’s Stone by Ramzi Maqdisi, online, 7–11 October 2020, free entry
A Palestinian young man receives a letter from the Israeli post office to appear in person to receive a package. He has to pay the sum of 20.000 US dollars in order to collect that package. Hussein’s curiosity drives him to sell everything he owns in order to find out what the package contains, as he embarks on a tragi-comedic journey of discovery.
Presented as part of Journeys International Festival 2020, the premiere screening of Solomon’s Stone will be followed by a Q&A with ArtReach’s Film Programmer Reba Martin and actor and filmmaker Ramzi Maqdisi.
