Palestine: Occupied Lives, Non-violence and Steadfastness: a Friday film series (from 4/2 through 5/21) about Palestinians & Israelis committed to nonviolence & coexistence. We will show five extraordinary, award winning films about Palestinians committed to resist nonviolently Israel's occupation, and Israelis who stand with them against injustice

Tonight, we show our 2nd film, Checkpoint, by director Yoav Shamir. The Israeli filmmaker spent three years filming at different checkpoints throughout the West Bank, capturing the distress of Palestinians awaiting permission to pass to attend to daily needs, as well as the arbitrary and arrogant behavior of the mostly young, heavily armed soldiers.
