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 are showing 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 5th (and last) film, Slingshot Hip Hop, by director Jackie Salloum. This hopeful and sometimes joyous film shows young Palestinians in Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank using music to express their pain at living separated, occupied, and treated as lesser beings. They succeed in communicating not only with each other, but, through this extraordinary film, with the world.

Co-Sponsors: BFUU-Social Justice Committee, International Solidarity Movement, Fr. Bill O'Donnell Social Justice Committee of St. Joseph the Worker, AFSC, Students for Justice in Palestine-UCB, Flashpoints (KPFA), MECA, JVP, Arab Film Festival, EPICALC
