"Rachel: An American Conscience"

A Documentary Film of the Tragedy of a Courageous

Rachel Corrie (1979-2003) from Olympia, Washington
wanted to right the injustice of the Israeli military
occupation of Palestine. This film chronicles her work
as a member of the International Solidarity Movement
(ISM) in Rafah in the Gaza Strip prior to her murder
in March 2003. She was attempting to stop the
demolition of the home of the family of Dr. Samir
Nasrallah; however, the Israeli soldier driver of the
U.S. made Caterpillar bulldozer drove over her. Film
Director Yahya Barakat, Professor of Mass Media and
TV Department at Al-Quds University in Jerusalem,
while focusing on circumstances of Rachel's tragic
death, gives different perspectives of the conflict
through interviews with individuals who criticize the
illegal Israeli occupation, the U.S and Israeli
governments, and the U.S. media coverage.

(Viewers are advised that this film shows graphic
violent scenes)
