by Raed Andoni
France, Palestine, Switzerland, 2009, 98’
Writer and film director Raed is a sort of Palestinian cousin of Woody Allen. Suf- fering from a headache that prevents him from working, he arms himself with humour and irony and questions his own role in Palestinian society. At the risk of upsetting his family and old friends, he decides to resort to psychotherapy and then make a film about it.

Georges Henri Rouault, French painter, was trained at the Ecole des Beaux -Arts, where he was the favorite pupil of Gustave Moreau and where he met, among the others, Henri Matisse. He participated in major public exhibitions in which he exhibited mainly religious subjects, landscapes and still lifes. In 1907 he executed a series of paintings dedicated to clown, Pierrot and prostitutes. The Spiritualism of his works made him one of the major painter of religious art of the twentieth century.
