    or public health The Freedom Theatre made an immediate appeal to the Swedish Migration Board which has been left unanswered for close to two weeks making it impossible for Mohammed Hajibrahim to attend the screening of his film at the Malmö Arab Film Festival Mohammed is an exemplary employee whose films have been selected to a number of festivals around the world says says Jonatan Stanczak the Managing Director of The Freedom Theatre This trip to Sweden was the result of over a year of hard work and the recognition of the excellent results of the theatre s multimedia department run by Mohammed Hajibrahim Stanczak who is a Swedish citizen adds that The Freedom Theatre has been partnering with Swedish organisations and individuals since it was founded in 2006 We are supported by Sida and PostkodLotteriet numerous Swedish artists and cultural workers have volunteered at the theatre and in Sweden we have performed and presented our work at festivals universities and venues throughout the country No representative of The Freedom Theatre has ever misconducted or dishonoured the terms of the visa Not long ago Nabil Al Raee Artistic Director of The Freedom Theatre was denied a visa to the UK for similar reasons while one of the theatre s film students was denied entry to Jordan in order to travel on to Norway for a film training course and several actors were denied permission by Israel to attend visa interviews at the US consulate in East Jerusalem An increasing number of staff and volunteers to The Freedom Theatre have been denied entry permits to the West Bank by Israel Stanczak is worried by the clear tendencies of increased isolation of Palestinian cultural associations On the one hand the visa application process for northern countries is becoming increasingly complicated and expensive
