Congratulations to director Mohammed Al-Majdalawi whose project OUT OF PLACE received a development grant from the Swedish Film Institute, which promotes contemporary Swedish films of all genres abroad.
OUT OF PLACE is a Close Up project from 2019 / 2020.
The film is a coming of age story of young Palestinians from Jabalia refugee camp, who are now successfully settled in Europe. Built on unique visual material filmed throughout 20 years, the film explores the personal transition and change of its protagonists from youth to adulthood. It is spiced with humour and brutal honesty and focuses on a deeply intimate dialogue and emotional responses of this generation, the film reflects upon universal questions of personal growth and change.
Mohammed had recently presented his project OUT OF PLACE at the Marché du Film, Cannes Doc. Every year during the Marché du Film, Cannes Docs offers a dedicated venue and tailored program of events for all feature documentary film professionals – filmmakers and industry decision-makers alike.
