Palestinians in the West Bank cannot travel more than 10 kilometres without being stopped by Israeli restrictions.

Checkpoints, demands for permits and the apartheid wall surrounding the occupied territories are all part of the struggle of daily life.

‘Freedom to Run’ follows Palestinian running group ‘Right to Movement’ and a group from Glasgow as they train for and run, both the Palestine and Edinburgh marathons. Whilst in Palestine, the Scottish runners learn about the impact of the restrictions on everyday life, and that something as universal as running is a far from easy task. The runners discover that they are not so different, but that they live very different lives.

There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers after the screening.

Funds raised by ticket sales will go to Medical Aid for Palestinians - https://www.map.org.uk
