Children of Palestine: Repression and Resiliency

Children of Palestine: Repression and Resiliency

Saturday, May 3, 2014 - 5:00pm to 8:30pm

Join us for a powerful afternoon of film, food, and advocacy to target one of the great unreported injustices of our times. Today, millions of Palestinian children live under occupation and siege, in constant fear for their safety and well-being. They struggle to enjoy the most basic things we cherish for our kids – learning and playing freely and imagining a hopeful future.

• View and discuss two compelling films.
• Engage in immediate advocacy for these children.

A light meal will be served.


Stone Cold Justice (45 minutes) is the Australian Broadcast Corporation’s groundbreaking investigative documentary about the Israeli government’s systematic strategy of threats, arrests, and detention of Palestinian youth.

Flying Paper (71 minutes) is the uplifting, true story of resilient Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip on a quest to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most kites ever flown. Co-produced with a team of young filmmakers in Gaza.
