The Tower

11 yrs 74 minutes 2018 7.1

In this animated film by Mats Grorud, we get to experience life as a Palestinian refugee through Wardi's eyes. Wardi was born and raised in the refugee camp of Bourj el Barajne, Lebanon, where Palestinian refugees have lived for over 70 years. What was a small one-story house in 1948 has grown with each new generation, just like all the other houses in the camp. This acclaimed film tells about displacement and escape, abandonment and hopefulness and about how life always continues. Erika Hallhagen writes in SvD that "An animated film for adults proves to be the very best way to portray life in anticipation of coming home." Kajsa Olsson writes in the Kommunalarbetaren that "It is a film that does not weigh for the most difficult at the same time as it contains a great deal of warmth and joy of life. "
