Leeds Palestinian Film Festival: Fire Fighters under occupation @ Otley Courthouse | England | United Kingdom

A lack of even the most basic firefighting equipment prompted the Fire Brigade Union to contact Palestinian firefighters several years ago. Now a new film traces what happened when one FBU member returned. Filmmaker Ciaran Gibbons travels to the occupied West Bank to speak to Palestinian firefighters working and living under the world’s longest running military occupation.

Stalls selling Palestinian ceramics and Zaytoun products will be present.

Followed by a Q&A with film director/firefighter Ciaran Gibbons.
