Final Cut for Real

Synopsis Alter winning Berlin’s Golden Bear with A Man Returned, Mahdi Fleifel, responsible for a considerable number of well-acclaimed short films, returns to the same path with A Drowning Man, a work that premiered at the latest Cannes Festival and Dokufest winner. It navigates between fiction and non-fiction, it takes on the experience of the Palestinian emigrants living trapped between poverty, uprooting and drug addiction.
