Tears of Gaza Film Screening and Discussion

Saturday, September 6th, 7pm

Arab Cultural and Community Center

2 Plaza St. San Francisco

Disturbing, powerful and emotionally devastating, Tears of Gaza is less a conventional documentary than a record–presented with minimal gloss – of the 2008 to 2009 bombing of Gaza by the Israeli military. Photographed by several Palestinian cameramen both during and after the offensive, this powerful film by director Vibeke Løkkeberg focuses on the impact of the attacks on the civilian population

Tears of Gaza makes no overriding speeches or analyses. The situation leading up to the incursion is never mentioned. Similar events certainly occurred in Dresden, Tokyo, Baghdad and Sarajevo, but of course Gaza isn’t those places. Tears of Gaza demands that we examine the costs of war on a civilian populace.

Watch the trailer here: http://muvi.es/w6400

This event is free and open to the public. Donations welcome.

This year’s Arab Women’s Conference is themed “‘Quwat Al Mar’aa: The Power of Woman’” and highlights Arab women’s work to empower themselves and others, from home lives to social movements. What are the creative ways that Arab women across the Arab world and in diaspora have built our personal and collective power?    How do Arab women’s diverse backgrounds in terms of class, religion and sect, nationality, gender identity and sexuality affect our experiences of power?    What can Arab women do to heal the divides and damage created by different forms of oppression we face and grow our collective power across our differences? This year’s conference aims to highlight Arab women's incredible work to empower their communities and each other and to share tools for the collective empowerment and growth of our beautifully diverse community.
