Screening of the documentary Open Bethlehem. Director LeiLa Sansour will lead a discussion afterward. Free admission and light supper provided. The movie follows Sansour's campaign to stop occupying Israeli forces encircling her hometown with a concrete wall, as she attempts to unite Christians, Muslims and Jews in their desire for free access to the Holy City. Daoud Kattab of the Middle East Monitor called it, "A ninety-minute epic that transcends politics and normal cinema."
