Ahmad Fawzi Saleh’s Poisonous Roses and Raed Andoni’s Ghost Hunting were selected to participate at the Final Cut section of the 73rd Venice Film Festival. “Final Cut in Venice” is a workshop dedicated to support the post-production of films from Africa and the Middle East.
In Ghost Hunting, the director, Raed Andini, assembles an eclectic group of Palestinian ex-prisoners in an empty yard in a quest to free the demons of his former jail. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the Israeli interrogation center they all experienced, and reenact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.
In Poisonous Roses, Fawzi's debut feature, the world has left nothing to Taheya except her brother Saqr. When he decides to leave her, she will do anything to keep him by her side.
Another AFAC supported Film, Ala Eddine Slim’s debut film “The Last of Us” was also selected as one of 7 films to participate to the 31st International Film Critics' Week of the Festival.
In 2015, three AFAC supported film were featured in the Venice Film Festival.
