"The slow burning Corner Store follows the journey of Yousef Elhaj, owner of a Mission district corner deli, as he travels from San Francisco to his native Palestinian territories to be reunited with his family, which he hasn't seen in 10 years. The film provides a moving insight into one man's struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots." - The New York Times

Join a growing group of people who believe this little film has the power to move hearts and minds toward peace and understanding for the Palestinian people. Participate in Q&A discussion after the screening moderated by Michel Shehadeh, Executive Director of the Arab Film Festival, with the protagonist Yousef Elhaj and Director/Producer Katherine Bruens.

See the film that is capturing the attention of activists and mainstream media alike. The benefit screening gives the community a sneak peek chance to see the film before it officially premiers. Take advantage of this last opportunity to see the film in its local Bay Area

Event Partners Include: Arab Cultural and Community Center, Jewish Voice for Peace, Arab Film Festival, International Solidarity Movement, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, Arab Resource & Organizing Center, Middle Eastern Children's Alliance, Friends of Sabeel North America, Screening Liberally, and the Arab American Grocers Association.
