Mai Masri's award-winning film, 3000 NIGHTS!
Accused of helping a teenaged boy on the run, a newly-wed Palestinian schoolteacher gives birth to her child, in chains, in an Israeli high-security prison -- where she fights to protect him and to survive herself. Palestinian filmmaker Mai Masri's film 3000 NIGHTS explores the meaning of motherhood, love, betrayal, and the solidarity of women prisoners. Masri says it is about "resilience, resistance, and above all, a film about hope."

Selected as the Jordanian entry for Best Foreign Language Film for 2017 Oscars.

"See this film, see it Now!" -- Ken Loach, Cannes Film Festival
