When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. She embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time.

Naila and the Uprising chronicles the journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women on the front lines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history - the First Intifada in the late 1980s.

This film brings out of anonymity these courageous women activists. We remember how women-led civil resistance can stir the masses, put pressure on power-holders, and affect real structural change. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Julia Bacha.

For International Women's Day! A local Palestinian activist panel will speak briefly after the film.

TICKETS $15, $25, $50, and at the door -- Benefit for MECA

"In 'Naila and the Uprising," female activists are not shiny aberrations--they are the unseen spine holding up a movement."-- The Daily Beast
