Eli and I (later joined by Joe) handed out all our flyers and cards.

Everyone was very friendly because they didn't really know if we were representing a group. Handing out flyers without signs works better, at least for events like this.

My high point: a woman came back and showed me the card with the four maps of Palestine. "Did you hand this out? she asked. When I said I had, she told me she had read it, and couldn't go in to listen to Dennis Ross. I thanked her, she thanked me, and she walked away.

Where Should the Birds Fly


We had a great turnout for this first film in our series. A question and answer session with Fida Qishta followed the film. Her matter of fact presentation about life and filmmaking in Gaza brought us back from the intense emotion of her film. But lingering beneath the surface are always the questions. How is this suffering borne by the people of Gaza? And why don't the American people know about it?
