On Tuesday, March 21st, we are hosting our second event of Palestine Solidarity Week with a screening of “Kingdom of Women”, followed with a discussion about the importance of oral history and the centering of Palestinian women and their role historically in Palestinian Resistance from the Palestine Arab Women’s Congress to the present.
The event will be held in 170 Boalt School of Law from 5:30-7 PM. A movie review from the Abu Dhabi Film Festival describes the film.
“This documentary is an enchanting ode to the resilience, intelligence, and valor of Palestinian women from Ain el-Hilweh. The largest refugee camp in Lebanon, it has endured war and destruction through several Israeli invasions and the long-drawn-out Lebanese civil war. In recording the lived experiences of generations of mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives, director Dahna Abourahme collaborates with illustrator and animation artist Lena Merhej to produce a visually poetic register of a history doomed to remain oral."
