Film Budrus 8 july

Sutton for Peace and Justice presents a screening of the film BUDRUS.

On Friday 8th July 2011, doors open 7.00pm, film starts at 7.30.
At Friends House, Cedar Road, Sutton, SM2 5DA.

Your chance to see a multi-award winning film that has not been on general release at cinemas. Duration 70 mins.

A documentary telling the story of Palestinian community organiser, 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.

This is a truly remarkable film, which focuses attention on the little-reported daily non-violent resistance by Palestinians to the occupation.

“A stark and believable portrait of the Middle East, with a focus on character,
not political point scoring” – Time Out. “Engrossing and … inspiring” – New York Times. “This involving film is an eye opener ” – the Guardian.
