Monday special price: 12.-

In the presence of Nicolas Wadimoff and Marc-André Haldimann, archaeologist and protagonist of the film. In 2013, a 2000-year old statue of Apollo was found near Gaza, only to disappear all of a sudden. Apollo incites all sorts of rumours, even the craziest ones. The Apollo of Gaza is at once an inquiry and a meditation on history, plunging us into the barely known reality of a territory that is still paying the price of wars and a merciless blockade, but where life also subsists, undefeated.
