On occasion of the screening of the documentary Live from Palestine (2002) and the movie Haifa (1998), haus.0 invited Masharawi to present his works and put them up for discussion.
haus.0 presents films and a talk by Palestinian filmmaker Rashid Masharawi. Masharawi was born in 1962 in the refugee camp Shatii and currently lives in Ramallah. In the course of 20 years, he created significant film works that mainly deal with the status of refugees facing spacial politics that started with the first Intifada stretching over the peace process and lasting until today. Masharawi’s methodology can be seen as a reflection of the production of space. His works contain films (such as Rabab, a film about violence against women in refugee camps or Haifa, a film that was honored at the Cannes Festival) and documentaries. He is founder and director of the Cinema Production Center at Ramallah, which is a space for cultural exchange, production and education for young filmmakers. Moreover, Masharawi founded Mobile Cinema, a mobile cinema, that tours refugee camps.
