The Millenium Film Festival and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) have the pleasure to present the film (followed by a discussion):
"The Road to Silverstone"
Wednesday, 5th June at 20:30h- Cinéma Vendôme (Ch. Wavre 18, Brussels)
An inspirational tale of determination against adversity, The Road to Silverstone tells the true story of a group of young Palestine refugees who succeeded in building a Formula 1 racing car, the first ever such car built in Gaza, and in bringing it to compete at the International Student competition at Britain's famous Silverstone track. Capturing the dreams of a group of young men and women and the challenges facing them, the film presents a side of life in Gaza rarely seen by the outside world.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Dr Ghassan Abu-Orf (Dean of the Khan Younis Training Centre in Gaza, who helped the students in their project); Mrs. Isabelle Durant (Vice-President of the European Parliament); Mr Hadi Shebli (Deputy Head of Mission of Palestine to the EU) and Mrs Simone Susskind (President of Actions in the Mediterranean- NGO). The debate will be moderated by Mr Gie Goris (Editor in chief of MO* Magazine).
