Atash DVD

Atash DVD
Winner of the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, this beautiful and powerful debut feature from the brilliant young Arab filmmaker, Tawfik Abu Wael, is also an important groundbreaking collaboration between a Palestinian writer/director and an Israeli producer, financiers and crew - the first of its kind. Abu Shukri and his family have settled alone in a valley far from their home town. Tyrannical father, Shukri rules the home with an iron fist, forcing his wife and three children to burn fires all day to make charcoal. When he decides to build a pipeline to bring fresh water to their home, it awakens their instinct for freedom, but carries with it tragic consequences for the entire family. Featuring haunting music, stunning cinematography, and incredibly moving performances from the non-professional cast, 'Atash' is a complex, assured and vivid first feature from an exciting filmmaker, and one to watch for the future.
