How can we learn from the experiences of journalists, organizers and activists in Israel and Palestine? What role can the disruptive media play in furthering movements for rights and equality, both in Israel and Palestine and in the United States? How can movements for rights and dignity across contexts support one another? For more information click here. Please RSVP to events@justvision.org.

World Premiere of Naila and the Uprising

 Location:  New York | NY     Screening Time: 4:15 - 6:00 pm

Join Just Vision for the World Premiere of our newest film, Naila and the Uprising, at DOC NYC, the biggest documentary festival in the United States. 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.
