Thursday, June 30, 2011 - 7pm-9:30pm

The Middle East Children's Alliance & the Arab Film Festival present the Berkeley premiere of bay area filmmaker & activist Iara Lee's new feature film Cultures of Resistance:

The film won Best Documentary at the Tiburon International Film Festival and is showing around the globe, from Portugal to China to Ethiopia. Journeying through five continents, it captures creative change-makers using art and activism to turn our upside-down world right-side-up, for peace with justice (including in Palestine and Lebanon). Their personal stories and strategies, told in many tongues, broaden our understanding of the geopolitical fault-lines behind modern day conflicts -- inspiring audiences to further engagement and action. We hope to reach filmmaker Iara Lee by skype for Q and A after the film (she will be on the US Boat to Gaza, The Audacity of Hope).

We expect this event to sell out, get your tickets NOW! Tickets $10 general, $8 students. For info: 510-548-0542, events [at] mecaforpeace.org

Benefit for clean water for children in Gaza. No one turned away for lack of funds. Wheelchair accessible. We regret that this film will not be ASL interpreted.

Cosponsored by: Global Studies Department/Berkeley City College, US Palestinian Community Network, Bay Area Women in Black, School of Unity and Liberation, Al-Awda, Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, and more!
