Painting the Separation Wall
Tuesday, February 23rd, 5pm

During the Israeli army's Operation Defensive Wall operation in the city of Jenin in the West Bank in 2002, the city was sealed and the operation ended with Jenin flattened and scores of Palestinians dead.  For Jenin, Jenin, Mohamed Bakri interviews Jenin residents in the aftermath on what they experienced and witnessed during the operation, giving a revealing look into life under Occupation and how it affects the state of mind of the occupied.

Remnants of a War takes an intimate look into the lives of brave Muslims and Christians, Sunni and Shia, women and men of Southern Lebanon as they work to make their land safe again after the 2006 Israeli invasion. The film is a primer on the cluster munition problem, and a portrait of a people struggling to make a living and return the land to their fellow Lebanese.

Israel's systematic colonization, intimidation, and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians is just another example of a highly militarized State denying people their right to freedom, self-determination, and civil rights. This panel explores the similarities and differences in the experiences African Americans, South Africans, Palestinians, and Native Americans face as they continue to struggle for the most basic human rights.
