Open Bethlehem

Take One Action and DCA are delighted to welcome director Leila Sansour to Dundee for a Q&A following this screening.

"One of the most remarkable and moving documentaries I've ever seen"

Jon Snow

Bethlehem-born Leila Sansour, armed with her camera and a dilapidated family car (that keeps breaking down), returns to her childhood home to make a deeply personal film about a legendary town in crisis.

However, just a few months into the project her life and the film take an unexpected turn, when Leila's cousin Carol, her last relative in town, persuades her to stay and start a campaign to save the city from irredeemable separation.
