London, United Kingdom
The Bookshop Theatre launch their Film night with a fantastic opportunity to see the award winning "Budrus" at the Bookshop Theatre, Waterloo. Followed by a Q&A with the inspirational director Julia Bacha
Budrus is an award-winning feature documentary film about a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites local people in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier.
While this film is about one Palestinian village, it tells a much bigger story about what is possible in the Middle East. Ayed succeeded in doing what many people believe to be impossible: he united feuding Palestinian political groups, including Fatah and Hamas; he brought women to the heart of the struggle by encouraging his daughter Iltezam's leadership; and welcoming hundreds of Israelis to cross into Palestinian territory for the first time and join this nonviolent effort.
