Short film Bomb, by director Dima Hamdan, will take part in the 4th Beirut Women International Film Festival (July 19- 23). The film will screen at 12:00 PM & 2:00 PM, Lebanon time (GMT+3), on Tuesday, July 20.

Beirut International Women Film Festival (BWFF) is an annual event held in Beirut that brings together filmmakers and cinema lovers from all over the world. BWFF tackles issues such as gender equality, sexual identity, and domestic violence, through the power of the lens and cinema, which is the window on society and particularly women in this case.

Wasim and his mother haven't been getting along for a while. When the police ask them to evacuate their home in Berlin for one night to excavate a World War II bomb that's been discovered in the area, more feelings of anger and hurt come to the surface.

Bomb was selected at a number of festivals, including the Nova Frontier Film Festival & Lab, USA. Additionally, it nabbed the Best Female Director award at the Ayodhya Film Festival, India and Special Mention at Festival del Cinema dei Diritti Umani di Napoli, Italy. Directed and written by Dima Hamdan, the film stars Tarik Al Saies, Rawa Darweisch, Friederike Frerichs and Celine Meral. MAD Solutions handles the film’s distribution across the Arab world.

Dima Hamdan is a Palestinian journalist and filmmaker. She spent over ten years working with the BBC Arabic & World Service. The stories she covered during that time inspired many ideas for her short films and feature projects. She has directed five shorts since 2007 in London, Amman and Berlin.
