Organizer/AuthorHeads Up Collective
As part of Televising the Revolution, a Radical Film Series at El Rio, 3158 Mission St @ Cesar Chavez, SF, the Heads Up Collective presents the Bay Area Premier of PALESTINE BLUES, a film by Nida Sinnokrot. Also featuring speakers from ADC-SF.

Palestine Blues follows the repercussions of the Israeli Apartheid Wall and Settlement expansion in the Palestinian farming communities of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Instead of focusing on the Wall as an object, Palestine Blues examines the grassroots resistance movement that has sprung up against it. In June 2002, construction of Israel's now infamous barrier began in the West Bank. Though it is referred to as a "security fence" by Israel, its form changes along the route, and near large cities it is a concrete wall
twice as high as the Berlin Wall.

PALESTINE BLUES is a story of survival, which documents the
grassroots resistance movement that has sprung up against the Wall. Featuring unforgettable characters and breathtaking footage, at times shot under great duress, by the Palestinian Director Nida Sinnokrot, PALESTINE BLUES offers a unique, insider's look at the resilience and despondency that characterize Palestinian life under occupation.

The film screening is a benefit for the American-Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee, San Francisco chapter (ADCSF) ADC is a national, grassroots organization committed to defending and protecting the civil rights of Arab-Americans. Locally, ADC-SF is actively engaged with the Arab, Muslim, and Progressive communities and to counter discrimination, secure rights for immigrants and act in solidarity with the people of Palestine and Lebanon. This summer, the ADC-SF helped initiate the local Break The Siege campaign to end the siege on Gaza and Lebanon.

This screening is part of an ongoing monthly series showcasing radical films and supporting local organizing. Films are shown on the patio at El Rio every month. Event is free, but donations accepted. Space is wheelchair accessible, but bathrooms are not. 21 and over.

The HeadsUp Collective is a white anti-racist, anti-imperialist
project. We are rooted in the global justice and anti-war movements.

We work from the foundation that all people have the right to
housing, food, health care, meaningful work, and healthy communities. In short, we believe in the need for revolutionary change and the liberation of all people from the systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism,
heterosexism, the gender binary system, and imperialism.
