PalFest 2012

Loads of great videos from PalFest in Gaza earlier this month on their website and youtube. Inspiring stuff..

PalFest Highlights

Not sure why such an emphasis on Selma Debbagh speaking in English, but it’s a good overview of what was happening across Gaza City

Tarik Hamdan reads a poem by torch light when electricity cut off

Egyptian band Eskenderella play “يا فلسطينية”

Nice rapping but sorry, not sure who this is

And a good article about the challenges of blogging about PalFest from the always brilliant ArabLit blog
