Olive Tree - From Larissa Sansour's project "Nation Estate"

Lacoste: No Room For Palestinian Artist

21 Dec, 2011 

After she has been shortlisted for the 2011 Lacoste Elysée Prize, the nomination of AFAC’s new cinema grantee Larissa Sansour was revoked by Lacoste “for being too pro-Palestinian.”

 

In an attempt to mask the reasons for her dismissal, Lacoste asked Sansour to approve a statement saying that she withdrew from her nomination “in order to pursue other opportunities”. Sansour refused the request and commented saying: Palestine was officially admitted to UNESCO recently, yet we are still being silenced.”
