Humour on film is the best form of attack. At least it can appear to be the tactic of filmmakers such as Rashid Masharawi. The building on the West Bank where brothers Sami and Milad (called «Stereo») live is hit by an Israeli missile attack. The explosion kills Stereo's wife, and Sami loses his hearing and ability to speak. A gloomy beginning, and so the brothers decide to emigrate to Canada via Ramallah. The combination of harsh realism and dark satire is in this case quite irresistible. Palestine Stereo is one of the most expensive Palestinian films produced to date. The project has been supported by SØRFOND. akek
Suitable for persons 15 years and older.
