Film Screening …Naila and the Uprising

December 6, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in 1987, a 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 whose story weaves through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history — the First Intifada in the late 1980s. Naila and the Uprising was created by Just Vision and directed by Julia Bacha, the team behind the award-winning films Budrus (2009) and My Neighbourhood (2012).
