A first clip of Palestinian-Danish filmmaker Mahdi Fleifel’s TO A LAND UNKNOWN, has just being unveiled days away from the film’s World Premiere at Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes!

Fueled by a sense of urgency and boundless energy, TO A LAND UNKNOWN is the story of a tight friendship between two Palestinian cousins who are trying to escape a dire situation in the hope for a better future. The only Palestinian film to screen in Cannes, the film plays like a gripping thriller and you won’t want to miss a beat.

SYNOPSIS: TO A LAND UNKNOW tells the story of the desperate attempts of two Palestinian cousins stranded in Athens to find a way to reach Germany. Chatila and Reda are saving to pay for fake passports to get out of Athens. When Reda loses their hard-earned cash to his drug addiction, Chatila hatches an extreme plan, which involves them posing as smugglers and taking hostages in an effort to get him and his best friend out of their hopeless environment before it is too late.
