Non-CES Event

 

Friends of Palestine are hosting a film night.
 
Film showing -  The Idol.  This is a delightful, beautifully crafted and moving Palestinian film, directed by a Palestinian. It has  won numerous awards and is a snap shot of life in Gaza.

The Palace Electric, Acton, Wednesday July 20, 7.30 pm
Tickets  $22 each. 
The cost is more than the usual cinema seat price, but when there is a private showing like this there inevitably is a premium.

As tickets cannot be bought at the door you will need to GO TO THE LINK BELOW and order your ticket.
https://fan-force.com/screenings/the-idol-palace-electric-act/

There is also a trailer there that you can watch, to get a feel for the film.
We hope that you will come, it will be a treat to see this extraordinarily good film.
