Doha Tribeca Film Festival - Crayons of Askalan

Crayons of Askalan director and actors
The next evening we saw Crayons of Askalan.

A creative documentary based on the powerful story of Palestinian artist Zuhdi Al Adawi. In 1975, at the age of fifteen Zuhdi is imprisoned in the high security Israeli jail, Askalan. With the help of his fellow prisoners and their families, he keeps his spirit alive through artistic expression, smuggling in color crayons and smuggling out his artwork, with a pillowcase as his canvas.

It was okay but very artsy.
