2017 - Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine
North American Premiere
Screening with In the Land of Oranges
Twelve Palestinian women talk of their life before the Diaspora, their memories, lives and identity; all connected by the enduring thread of embroidery.
Resilient, determined and articulate women from disparate walks of life stitch together the story of their homeland, their dispossession, and their unwavering determination that justice will prevail. The individual weaves into the collective, yet remaining distinctly personal portraying a land whose position was fixed on the map of the world, and is now embroidered on its face.
Free embroidery workshop to follow film at Visit Palestine exhibit (4th Floor).
