German Backed Cinema Jenin Project Prepares For Launch

JENIN, WEST BANK - APRIL 06: German actress Annette Burchard looks on as a Swedish volunteer uses the Cinema Jenin logo to design a mosaic on a new wall of the city's old movie theatre on April 6, 2010 in Jenin, West Bank. Burchard and her husband, award-winning German director Marcus Vetter, who co-founded the Cinema Jenin project, have dedicated themselves to renovating the building twenty-two years after it was closed during the first Palestinian intifada. With funding from the German government, the Roger Waters foundation and many other sponsors, and with a team of local Palestinians and foreign volunteers, they are turning the run-down cinema into a modern cinematheque. The project's stated aim is to encourage a culture of cinema-going for both the population of Jenin and its refugee camp, and provide the city with a sustainable cultural centre while fostering principles of peaceful conflict resolution, co-existence and acceptance of others by denouncing all forms of violence and fanaticism.
