Our friends at East Kent Justice for Palestinians will show a screening of Open Bethlehem on Tuesday 28th November in Canterbury.
The film was described by Channel 4’s Jon Snow as “One of the most remarkable and moving documentaries I have seen. The tragedy of the Palestinians encapsulated in the life of one town.”
Leila Sanour’s film is a story of a homecoming to the world’s most famous little town. The film spans seven momentous years in the life of Bethlehem, revealing a city of astonishing beauty and political strife under occupation. The film draws from 700 hours of original footage and some rare archive material.
While telling a personal story, the film charts the creation of a campaign to compel international action to bring peace to the Middle East.
The event begins at 7pm on 28 November in St Stephen’s Church Hall, Hales Drive, Canterbury. Entrance is free.
