Kuttab Production Company announced that its movie “24 Hours in Jerusalem” is funded by German sources, thus denying claims of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel that the film is funded by Israel and considered an act of naturalization.
The production company stated in its letter to the SKeyes Center that “the film is based on the movie “24 Hours in Berlin” and aims to portray the pain, aspirations, suffering, and ambitions of the Palestinians through their daily lives in their city. Kuttab Productions is a Palestinian company based in East Jerusalem and is solely responsible for all characters from East Jerusalem that will appear in the film, and has absolute control on deciding the film makers and crew. The funds for the film are raised primarily from two German public TV channels that are Bayerischer Rundfunk and ARTE Germany, as well as funds from ARTE France and the Finnish broadcaster YLE”.
