Dutch premiere

In the 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon, around 1350
people lost their lives. Approximately 1200 were Lebanese,
and mostly civilians. For her film 33 Days, acclaimed
Palestinian documentary maker Mai Masri followed four
people as they try to survive the fighting in Lebanon. 33 Days
gives the war victims a face.
The first person 33 Days follows is the director of a theatre
in Beirut who offers shelter to children who have arrived in
Beirut from the south of Lebanon after fleeing the bombings.
The second one is an aid worker who is coordinating the
emergency relief, the third one a journalist who works for
an underground TV station and the last one is a mother
who is nursing her newborn baby. Through these people,
documentary maker Mai Masri gives the war victims a face.
It is not the first time Masri - one of the most revered Arab
filmmakers - has made a film about the consequences of a
war between Israel and Lebanon. In the beginning of her
career, she made Under the Rubble, a documentary about
Beirut at the time of the Israeli invasion of 1982.
