[Cork] Film Screening: The Land Speaks Arabic
May is the month Palestinians commemorate the 1948 Nakba. To commemorate this tragic event in solidarity with them, we are screening “The Land Speaks Arabic”, an award-winning documentary film from 2007 by Palestinian film maker Maryse Gargour.
It provides a rarely heard perspective on the creation of the state of Israel and the disaster that it represented for the Palestinians people. It also exposes many of the common myths and fabrications that are so often used to justify and rationalize the brutal and ongoing dispossession of Palestinian Arabs from their lands and livelihoods.
Members of Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign will be holding and attending the screening. This will begin our monthly screenings throughout the summer of movies relating to Palestine.
