BUDRUS, Screening & Discussion with Director Julia Bacha


Come to the screening of this important documentary following by a special Q&A conversation with award-winning director Julia Bacha.

Budrus tells the story of a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites members of all factions along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction by Israel's Separation Barrier. Success looks improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines.

Winner of multiple prizes at top international film festivals, including Tribeca, Berlin and San Francisco, Budrus is produced by Just Vision, an award-winning team of Israeli, Palestinian, North and South American journalists, filmmakers and human rights advocates dedicated to increasing the power, legitimacy and exposure of Palestinians and Israelis working nonviolently to resolve the conflict and end the occupation.
