DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival

Uncle Nashaat

Film: Uncle Nashaat


Nashaat is a Palestinian fighter who was killed by the Israelis in 1982. When Aseel, Nashaat’s nephew, comes across a fact that makes him doubt the circumstances of his uncle’s death, he embarks on a quest to find the truth. Not only does this quest lead him to disturbing facts, but it also makes him understand the real reasons behind his broken relationship with his father during his childhood.


Director: Aseel Mansour

Aseel Mansour is a Palestinian-Jordanian filmmaker born in Baghdad in 1977. He moved to Amman in 1991 where he received his BA from the University of Jordan in 2000. Mansour subsequently began his filmmaking career, winning the 2004 Best Filmmaker of the Year award in Amman for his film “Alert Guns” and then winning the Special Mention Award for Arab Film in the Jordan Short Film Festival in 2006 for the film “Little Feet”. In 2010, Mansour went to the US and received a Master’s degree in Media Psychology from Walden University. “Uncle Nashaat” is a personal journey for Mansour.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
