Film Fundraiser for AFOPA

AFOPA warmly invites our members and supporters to share with us a film from Palestine.

"Beautifully written, produced, directed and acted by an ensemble cast of children and adults. Very moving..." - David F., AFOPA Executive Member.

From two-time Academy Award nominee Hany Abu Assad (Paradise Now, Omar), this is the incredible true story of a young boy in Gaza, Mohammad Assaf, who dreams of one day singing in the Cairo Opera House with his sister, Farrah. Farrah becomes critically ill and leaves Mohammad with a dying wish that someday, he will sing in Cairo. Escaping from Gaza to Egypt against unbelievable odds, Assaf makes the journey of a lifetime to ultimately become the winner of Arab Idol 2013.

Festivals: Toronto, London, Brisbane, Dubai.
Director: Hany Abu Assad (2015)
