We invite you to join us as we celebrate our 5th year as an official sister city with Nablus!
This year we will come together at the Museum of Boulder to watch The Tower — an exclusive showing! The film is about Wardi, an eleven-year-old Palestinian girl, who lives with her family in the refugee camp where she was born. She learns about her family’s history through stories told by three generations of refugees.
The Tower received the Liv Ullmann Peace Prize and the Professional Jury: 2nd Prize for Best Animated Feature Film at the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival. The film took part in the Cairo International Film Festival, Marrakech International Film Festival, London Palestine Film Festival, Palestine Cinema Days, Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, Arab Film Festival in Famac in France, Busan International Film Festival, Helsinki International Film Festival, and the European Film Festival in Ishbilia. The film also screened at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Cairo Cinema Days, San Sebastian Human Rights Film Festival in Spain, and the Metropolis Youth Film Festival in Lebanon.
Written and directed by Mats Grorud, The Tower features the voices of Romina Adl Kasravi, Mohamed Bakri, Najila Said, and Morad Hassan. The film is a French- Swedish-Norwegian coproduction that is distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions.
