JERUSALEM: THE EAST SIDE STORY

This documentary covers the recent history of Jerusalem through interviews with Palestinian and Israeli leaders, human rights activists, and political analysts. History is heaped on Jerusalem by the truckload. The latest shipment of history is the Israeli occupation. In 1948, the western part of the city fell under Israeli control; in 1967, the eastern part fell under Israeli occupation. Since then, Israel has pursued a policy of Judaizing the city, aiming to achieve “Jewish demographic superiority.” Part of this policy is to drive Palestinian Muslims and Christians out of the city -- denying their presence, history, and ties to the land. This film takes you on a journey exposing Israel’s policy to gain supremacy and hegemony over the city and its inhabitants. It also touches on the future of the city: Jerusalem is the key to peace. Without Jerusalem, there is no peace for anyone.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our vegetarian, organic refreshments.
