SIFA 2018 | In Conversation with Amer Hlehel (Palestine)

Get up close and personal to actor, playwright & director Amer Hlehel who both wrote the lyrical play TAHA based on the life of the Palestinian poet, and acts in it. In this session, Hlehel shares his thoughts on the one-man show he fronts, and talks about his artistic practice based out of Haifa and which has taken him around the world.

A Sundance Institute Theatre Program alumnus and former artistic director of Arabic-speaking Al-Midan Theatre in Haifa, Hlehel holds a prolific portfolio that extends beyond theatre into film. In fact, one of his early roles was in the critically acclaimed Paradise Now, a movie that won the Golden Globe in 2006 for best foreign language film, and was nominated for an Oscars in the same category.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity for a tête-à-tête with the talented performer.

(1h 30m, no intermission)

Please be seated at least 15 minutes before the programme begins. Unclaimed seats may be given away to walk-in patrons. Limited walk-in spaces are available at the venue.
