Where Should The Birds Fly is a film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel's siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, survivors of Israel's Operation Cast Lead. Mona Samouni, now 13 years old and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, now 29. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population. The film tells the story of the efforts of Gazans to live and work under conditions of siege. It also documents the horrific Israeli military attack, and the struggles of these two women to maintain humanity, humor and hope in a world that is anything but normal.
The filmmaker, Fida Qishta, will discuss the film and the circumstances under which it was made.
Free and open to the public (donations welcomed)
