THE LAND SPEAKS ARABIC

In this 2007 documentary by Palestinian filmmaker Maryse Gargour, the late 19th century birth of Zionism ─ and its repercussions for Palestinians ─ is detailed with original source documents, rare archival footage, testimonies of witnesses, and interviews with historians. All help to illustrate that the expulsion of the indigenous Arab population from Palestine was far from an accidental result of the 1948 war. This award-winning film shines a spotlight on the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by the Zionist movement.

33 DAYS

Palestinian filmmaker Mai Masri puts a face on the often-desensitized horrors of war taking us beyond the icy statistics and muted news stories into the fiery reality and courageous hearts of the survivors. Filmed during the Israeli war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006, this gripping documentary follows the real-life stories of four people: a theatre director working with children who took shelter in a theatre after their homes were destroyed; an aid worker who coordinated emergency relief efforts; a journalist for an underground television station; and a mother trying to cope with her new-born baby.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street

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