Directed by Dahna Abourahme
The story of the women of Ein El Hilweh refugee camp between 1982 and 1984 is an important chapter in the history of Palestinian refugee women in Lebanon. After the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, the camp was destroyed and its men imprisoned.
Kingdom of Women documents the organizing spirit of women during this period—detailing how they were able to rebuild the camp and provide for their families while their men were held captive.
Using animation and scenes from daily life as it moves between past and present, the film focuses on seven women, honoring the contributions they’ve made to the survival of the Palestinian community in exile.
With response from Rita from the Nakba Museum + Palestinian Embassy based in Bristol.
