Private

When: August 12th @ 7PM
Where: Ethical Society Building, 1906 Rittenhouse Sq, Philadelphia PA
Description: Inspired by real events, documentary filmmaker Saverio Costanzo’s feature debut is a minimalist psychological drama about a Palestinian family of seven suddenly confronted with a volatile situation in their home that in many ways reflects the larger ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian people.

Description: This documentary chronicles the Jenin Refugee Camp after the Israeli invasion of the West Bank and assault on the camp in 2002. Victims, many living in refugee tent cities, relate the story of devastation and brutality of the IDF assault on the camp. The film expresses their deep rage against the Israelis and their despair and hopelessness concerning their situation and their future.

Salt of this Sea

When: August 21st @ 8PM
Where: Clark Park at 45th & Regents, Philadelphia PA
Description: Soraya, born in Brooklyn in a working class community of Palestinian refugees, discovers that her grandfather’s savings were frozen in a bank account in Jaffa when he was exiled in 1948.

Slowly she is taken apart by the reality around her and is forced to confront her own anger.movies
