Director Tone Andersen returned  to the West bank for the Palestinian premiere in Bethlehem of ‘When the boys return’.

The director says: ‘It was great to screen the film with the boys and everyone who has been involved. The boys from the film came with their families, and also other youth who have been through the same therapy program. The mayor of Beit Ommar and the Minister of Prisoner’s affairs were also in the audience. Thank you all!’

Our thoughts are with Mohammed Jamil and Yazen, neither of them could make it to the screening as they are both in prison again.

The premiere was organized by East Jerusalem YMCA and supported by The Representative Office of Norway to the Palestinian Authority.

The premiere was the main heading at the PNN news report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vYLW3hG_xU
