About Screening for Palestine: Viento del este / East Wind. Cinema Mentiré @ Spanners

Cinema Meniré and Spanners will hold a special screening + Q&A of Viento del este (East Wind) for Palestine. This documentary delves into the filmmaker's past, tracing the figure of her late father, along with the Palestinian heritage of the family.



Directed by Maia Gattás Vargas, 2023, 74m, Argentina.

Tuesday 31 October at Spanners, Arch 504 Ridgway Rd, Loughborough Junction, London SW9 7EX

Doors open at 7 pm / Screening starts at 7.30 pm

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Gattás Vargas in attendance.


In Viento del Este, a captivating film-essay in the form of a letter, the filmmaker embarks on a personal journey, tracing her late father figure and their Palestinian heritage. From Patagonia, across the Río de la Plata, to Palestine, wind, snow, and a few inherited objects bring news from the East, carrying stories of belonging. Through footage of the Israeli-occupied West Bank and the Jordan River, the director unravels the threads of the past, blending personal and global history. Her journey becomes a shared experience of loss, filling the void left by her father's absence.
