The Crayons of Askalan - Feature Documentary
Category: Arab Documentary Film Program
Year: 2009
Status: Closed

The Crayons of Askalan is a docu-drama based on the harrowing experience of Palestinian artist Zuhdi Al-Adawi, who was imprisoned in Israel from age 15 to 30. With his imagination he is able to surpass the prison darkness and walls, creating drawings done on scraps of pillowcases. With the help of his fellow prisoners and their families, they improvise ways to smuggle in color crayons, and smuggle out his allegorical artwork, so it finds its way to the outside world.
