Video of the Day: Alamo Drafthouse Gives Gaza Filmmakers Thanksgiving Gift
Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Alamo Drafthouse posted a moving video about the power of film to cross borders.
The video below details the story of Ahmed and Mohamed Abu Nasser, two filmmaker brothers from Gaza who were invited by the Drafthouse to their theater to realize their greatest dream: To watch a film in a cinema. The twins were born a year after the last of Gaza's movie houses were destroyed.
Go here to donate to a Kickstarter campaign that's raising funds for the twins' first feature.
