Hosted by the NZ Palestine Solidarity Network: a one-off screening of the film 'The Idol', shown at the 2016 NZ International Film Festival. This special screening will raise funds to bring renowned Palestinian poet Rafeef Ziadah to perform in New Zealand in April 2017.

'The Idol' is based on the true story of Mohammed Assaf, a Palestinian singer from besieged Gaza, who sneaked across borders, produced forged documents and generally defied the odds to win the 2013 Arab Idol. The victory turned him not only into a singing sensation but also a symbol of hope for millions worldwide. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the Palestinian director of 'Paradise Now' and 'Omar', both nominated for Academy Awards.

Rating: PG (violence)
