Atash (Thirst) in July
Axiom Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of atash (Thirst) for 24th July 2006 priced at £19.99. Abu Shukri and his family have settled alone in a valley far from their home town. Tyrannical father, Shukri rules the home with an iron fist, forcing his wife and three children to burn fires all day to make charcoal. When he decides to build a pipeline to bring fresh water to their home, it awakens their instinct for freedom, but carries with it tragic consequences for the entire family.
Winner of the International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, this debut feature from the young Arab filmmaker, Tawfik Abu Wael, is also an important groundbreaking collaboration between a Palestinian writer/director and an Israeli producer, financiers and crew - the first of its kind.
