The German-Palestinian production and film distributing company Bukera Pictures developed in 2009 out of the peace project Cinema Jenin. It has its headquarters in Germany and in the West Bank. The company‘s philosophy is to produce powerful, provocative and entertaining feature films and documentaries for an audience which up until now has only consumed blockbuster movies. It is hoped by means of these high quality films to combat prejudice, hate and intolerance. In addition Bukera Pictures is a platform for international co-productions with directors, editors and film makers who believe that stories should do more than just entertain.
