Fragments of a Lost Palestine

Fragments of a Lost Palestine
Free film Screening:
Tuesday, June 21 at 7:30 pm 
Saugerties Library Community Room 
91 Washington Avenue, Saugerties, NY 12477
A subjective journey, shot as fragmented memories of the director's country of birth, Palestine, as remembered throughout years in exile. The film is above all an encounter with people: intellectuals, peasants, workers, and the director's niece as she grows up. Winner Dubai International Film Festival. 75 minutes
Presented by Middle East Crisis Response (www.mideastcrisis.org). Free educational films about Palestine will be shown on the third Tuesday of the month from June through September.
We had about 45 people at this showing, and almost everyone remained at the end for a good discussion of the plight of the Palestinian people.
