When Pigs Have Wings
Following a storm at sea, Jafaar, a poor Palestinian fisherman, is surprised when he reels in a pot-bellied pig along with his usual catch. Unsure of what to do with this ‘impure’ beast, he attempts to sell it but trying to profit from a pig in Gaza is not as easy as it sounds, and the pair become entangled in an extraordinary chain of events and a rather dubious line of work…

When Pigs have Wings is a film by Sylvain ESTIBAL.

‘The Pig of Gaza’ is a hugely entertaining tale of an everyday hero’s valiant efforts to survive in a country bound by poverty, military occupation and religious extremism. Optimistic til the last, the unlikely duo pick their way through political (and sometimes literal) minefields with hilarious results. Jafaar’s singular quest for a better life allows us to believe that despite many divides and differences, there may still be hope for a better future for all.
