"Budrus" is an award-winning feature documentary film about a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites local Fatah and Hamas members along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction by Israel's Separation Barrier. Success eludes them until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines. Struggling side by side, father and daughter unleash an inspiring, yet little-known, movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories that is still gaining ground today.
After the screening, participants were joined by Ayed Morrar, the film's protagonist, and Julia Bacha (via Skype) to hear them speak more about the experience of nonviolent resistance in Budrus and the making of the film.
