Israelis are running for their lives from a deadly virus and flocking to the safest place they can find – Gaza. Michael, a British journalist, and his Israeli girlfriend Keren are among them, but when they get stuck in a basement with Hamas on their tail, their only hope lies in the hands of bumbling Palestinian market traders Emad and Waleed, and Waleed’s clever wife Nuhad. It’s a race against time as they try to outrun the virus and their own incompetence in this hilarious comedy, winner of the FIPRESCI prize at Toronto. Don’t miss this exclusive UK Premiere.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the creative team.
