Istiyad Ashbah (Ghost Hunting)
In order to confront the ghosts that haunt him, Palestinian director Raed Andoni assembles an eclectic group of ex-prisoners to build a replicate of Al-Moskobiya, Israel’s main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the interrogation centre they all experienced, and re-enact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Raed Andoni (tbc) and Wadee Hanani
Raed Andoni is a Palestinian director and producer. He and was born in 1967 in Amman (Jordan). Andoni started his carreer in the film industry in 1997 as independent producer. He cofounded 2 production houses: Dar Films in Palestine, and Les Films de Zayna in Paris. His first documentary as a director, Improvisation (2005), is an appealing insight into a Palestinian Joubran family during the Caesarean birth of their musical “Oud” trio. For his first feature length film, Fix Me (2009) Andoni filmed 20 sessions of his own therapy in Ramallah. Featuring a colorful array of characters, including members of Andoni’s own family, FIX ME explores the need for finding individuality in a place so dominated by collective consciousness and identity. Fix Me was premiered in Sundance and Cannes. Ghost Hunting is his second feature film and the recipient of the Berlinale’s 2017 Documentary Award.
This event is part of Processions of the Sun, a program curated by Eye on Palestine.

About the festival
Connexion vzw (Brussels) and A.M.Qattan Foundation are proposing a focus on flemish-palestinian co-operation in arts and culture, inspired by the Government of Flanders and the Mission of Palestine in Europe, Belgium and Luxembourg who decided on a Flemish-Palestinian cultural project. Unlike the logic of events like Europalia, or even the Venice biennale which are a projection of the imagination of a country, Under Construction is based on reciprocity and aims to promote cultural cooperation, dialogue and exchange.
Instead of focusing on difference and alterity, the two organising partners focus on co-operation and solidarity, and give more visibility and value to forms of 'togetherness' that are already existing between Flanders and Palestine.
