I am so happy that HALEEMA won Best Narrative Film as well as the Audience Choice Award at the 2019 WATERtown Film Festival at the Plumbing Museum.
The film is still going strong and it’s a topic is, unfortunately, more relevant than ever regarding the current refugee crises and the increasing water scarcity around the globe.
Thank you so very much for screening and recognizing HALEEMA at this year’s festival.
HALEEMA will be screened on June 27th at 6.30 pm during the inaugural WATERtown Film Festival near Boston, MA.
We are proud to be part of this important film festival that was created to increase public awareness of the environmental, social, and cultural importance of water. This is an opportunity to view exceptional works from around the world in the historic Plumbing Museum of Water Town.
HALEEMA will be screened during the 26th Filmfest Hamburg as part of the program “Heimatfilme”, a section connecting cinema and integration. This year’s lineup features films from Afghanistan, Germany, Eritrea, Iraq, Iran, Kurdistan, Somalia, Sudan, and Syria.
On September 30th, HALLEEMA will screen at 19.00 at the Gemeindezentrum St. Markus-Hoheluft in Hamburg. After the screening, filmmakers and guests can connect during a communal dinner while sharing typical dishes from the regions of the films.
There is no entry fee, donations are welcome but not mandatory.
Schaut vorbei, wenn Ihr in Hamburg seid! 🙂

The festival offers you a glimpse into all these and more – the struggle, the hopes and despair, the success stories…”
