Witness Palestine Film Festival
Witness Palestine Film Series was created to address the misconceptions around the conflict in Palestine-Israel by screening documentary and narrative films about the human rights issue. Providing compelling films which illustrate the realities on the ground in both Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.
This film festival is an attempt to communicate some of this information to others in the Rochester and Western New York area by working with a broader, more diverse segment of the community.
With Soufra, the festival hopes to share their journey to reveal how through the many ups and downs, it is their community that is built – finding their sense of hope they take control of their own narrative – making this a deeply moving film. Mariam has been known as ‘the crazy lady’ and now she will show just how crazy she is. In the refugee camp that Mariam calls home, she found inspiration. This is her story.
Following the film, Director Thomas Morgan will be joining the panel for a Q&A.
The Witness Palestine Film Festival is sponsored by Christians Witnessing for Palestine, who seek a just peace for the people of Palestine wherever they may be.
