Palestinian Self-Representation and Why It Matters

July 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$5 – $100

Join Jewish Voice for Peace DC (JVP DC) as we delve into the importance of Palestinian self-representation and the power dynamics inherent in storytelling. This event is a JVP DC fundraiser for the DC Palestinian Film & Arts Festival.

We’ll gather our resources to help make this important festival, which showcases the range and complexity of Palestinian identities and narratives, possible – and at the same time, we’ll learn more about why Palestinians are reclaiming space to tell their own stories. The program will include a short film screening and a discussion moderated by DCPFAF Managing Director Nusayba Hammad and Co-Director and Head Curator Michael Kamel.

Grab your sliding-scale ticket(s) to the fundraiser

Then, save the date for the festival, DC Palestinian Film & Arts Festival 2018. #DCPFAF18, running October 1-7, is themed “Threads of Resilience” and will look ahead to the future, inviting young, emerging Palestinian artists and filmmakers to imagine Palestine 10, 20, and 200 years down the line.
