NAILA AND THE UPRISINGA Just Vision Film
In Association with Fork Films

When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a woman in Gaza must make an impossible choice between love, family, and freedom. Undaunted, she chooses all three, joining a clandestine network of Palestinian women who shake the Israeli occupation and put Palestinians on the map 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). Just Vision 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 everyone in the region.
