From the Poster of "Crayons From Askalan"

Crayons of Askalan touring festivals

02 Apr, 2012 

After its World Premiere at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival and International Premiere at the CPH: Dox Festival in Denmark, the AFAC-funded film, Crayons of Askalan by Laila Hotait, has been selected to participate in the official competitions of Hot Docs! 2012, Montevideo International Film Festival and Documenta Madrid.

 

Hotait’s film is a docu-drama based on the harrowing experience of Palestinian artist Zuhdi Al-Adawi who, on being imprisoned in Israel from the age of 15 to 30, manages to stay alive and cope with his confinement by smuggling in crayons and drawing on his pillow cases. His allegorical artworks are smuggled out and find their way to the outside world.
