Description

TOMORROW’S FREEDOM, made over the course of five years, gains intimate access to the family of imprisoned Palestinian political leader, Marwan Barghouthi. Often described as the “Palestinian Nelson Mandela,” Barghouthi is serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison. Through the Barghouthi family and a collage of in depth interviews from the people who know him best, including his dedicated and accomplished wife, Fadwa, the immersive documentary is an unflinchingly honest and transformative journey into the saga of Palestinian prisoners, their loved ones, and political representation of Palestinians under occupation. Preceded by DAKHLA (2023, dir. Nick Leffel, 6 min.), and HIGH ROADS (2023, dir. Giuliana Racco, 19 min.).
