Join us on Wednesday, March 28, at 6:00 PM for a screening of student films from the West Bank and Gaza, organized by Sarah Friedland, director of MDOCS Documentary Storytellers’ Institute at Skidmore College, and Nancy Kalow, filmmaker and instructor at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

The group of films in the program include both documentary and fiction, showcasing creative, meaningful, and universal student filmmaking. The films bring us close to a range of people and situations in today’s Palestine: artists, workers, families, and children. The seven films, take viewers to places ranging from the rubble of Gaza to the Strip’s greenest fields; from crowded checkpoints to the isolation of detention and prison; and in and around the joyful homes and everyday life in varying parts of Palestinian society.

This screening is part of the Palestinian Voices series, which is organized and co-sponsored by the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS), the Environmental Studies and Sciences Program, International Affairs, Media and Film Studies, Art History, History, and Hayat.
