This documentary style play, written by Jen Marlowe, is about Aseel Asleh, a 17 year old Palestinian citizen of Israel killed by police in October 2000. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over 14 years, the play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity. In its debut performance at SJC, it aims to create conversations with audiences across the United States to build solidarity across universal struggles for liberation and equality.

This production of the play is touring Universities and Colleges. It is done in partnership with donkeysaddle projects, Adalah, 50 Shades of Black, Students for Justice in Palestine, The US campaign to end the Israeli Occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace and Code Pink.

Film Series: Blue Velvet

1986. USA. Dir: David Lynch. With Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini. 120 min.


A college dropout’s discovery of a severed ear leads him to a despairing lounge singer, a nitrous-huffing sex fiend, and one suave pimp with a fondness for Roy Orbison. Lynch’s subversive, surreal spin on suburban life takes you on a funny and frightening dive down the American rabbit hole. Be a good neighbor at your own peril.
