During the 1970s and 1980s, there was a rich cultural cooperation between the PLO and East Germany. The Film Festival in Leipzig is a vague yet positive Palestinian memory. German film expert and distributor Irit Neidhardt completed a first viewing of the paper archives of the festival for the years the PLO attended the event starting in 1973. She will present her project exemplified by files regarding the PLO production Al-Manam that won an award in Leipzig in 1987 and which will be shown, followed by a discussion moderated by Mohanad Yacoubi.
