Here's how it will work: We'll start the film together at 5pm PT following a brief introduction from Suhad. After the film, we'll come back together for a post-screening discussion at 6:30pm PT.
If you're unable to join us for the collective screening but would still like to join for the post-screening discussion, we'll provide you with a link to watch the film on your own beforehand.

Naila and the Uprising: When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a young woman in Gaza 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. Naila and the Uprising chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women at the frontlines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history -- the First Intifada in the late 1980s.
Suhad Babaa: Suhad Babaa is a media strategist, producer, human rights advocate and the executive director of Just Vision, an organization that researches, documents and disseminates the stories of Palestinians and Israelis working to end the occupation and build a future of freedom, dignity and equality for all. Suhad leads Just Vision’s journalistic efforts as the co-director of the award-winning Hebrew-language news site Local Call and executive produced their acclaimed feature-length documentary, Naila and the Uprising.
