Workshop on Award-Winning Palestinian Films Naila & the Uprising and Budrus

Event Details

DC area teachers: Sign up now for a free workshop on Saturday with a film, chance to meet filmmakers, lunch, and classroom resources. See "Naila and the Uprising" which chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh whose story weaves through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history — the First Intifada. When the nation-wide uprising breaks out in 1987, Naila must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. Undaunted, she embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time. The film is produced by the award-winning team Just Vision and directed by Julia Bacha.
