A young Palestinian woman visits her husband in an Israeli prison. Unable to have conjugal visits, they devise an unusual and unexpected way to conceive.

A Statement of Resistance (Ali Jabaly, 2022, Norway/ Palestine, 6min)

The will of a people to exist; this mixed-media animation shows the perseverance of a city that continues to rebuild itself despite the ravages of war. Inspired by the myth of the phoenix, a creature that cyclically regenerates and obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor, A Statement of Resistance explores the idea of hope for a better future and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
