Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Petra, headed by Mrs. Lynne Farradj Muasher, and in the presence of the President of the Inner Wheel Club of Amman, Mrs. Fayrouz Badwan, and the President of the Inner Wheel Club of Philadelphia, Mrs. Nazi Qopti, watched the Palestinian film “Between Heaven and Earth” at Baraka Mall Cinema. The meeting was attended by the director of the film, Najwa Najjar, and its producer Hani Al-Qurt. The screening of the film was followed by questions and answers between the audience and the director.
The film won the Naguib Mahfouz Award for Best Screenplay, within the competitions of the 41st Cairo Film Festival International Competition. It tells the story of the love and divorce of a Palestinian couple, Tamer and Salma, on their journey to obtain official papers necessary for their divorce between the cities of occupied Palestine.
Between Heaven and Earth is a film that depicts the daily life of the inhabitants of Palestine under occupation.
At the end of the meeting, Mrs. Muasher thanked the attendees, and presented Mrs. Najjar with a bouquet of flowers in appreciation of her role in shedding light on the suffering of the Palestinian people through the sublime humanitarian message of art.
