“Where Should the Birds Fly?” Screening + Discussion with Director Fida Qishta

From the lovely Tedra James ’18:

As a part of Israeli Apartheid Week (Feb. 26th – Mar. 5th), come join Wesleyan Students For Justice in Palestine in welcoming Palestinian Filmmaker Fida Qishda.

Wesleyan Students For Justice in Palestine will be hosting a screening and post-discussion of “Where Should the Birds Fly?”, a film that documents the separate stories and shared experiences of two women who survived Israel’s Operation Cast Lead: 11-year-old Mona Al Samouni who spends the film trying to make sense of her intense experiences and Fida Qishta who began her film making as a wedding videographer before quickly moving to work with international human rights observers in Gaza.

In addition to following the lives of these two women, “Where Should the Birds Fly?” visually tells the story of the efforts of Gazans to live and work under conditions of siege, and to maintain their humanity amidst the impact of military attack.

Date: TONIGHT! February 27
Time: 8-10 PM
