Saving a Palestinian Village from the Separation Barrier through Non-Violent Resistance


The will be shown at the Silverdocs Film Festival at the American Film Institute in Silver Spring on June 24 at 7:15 pm and June 26 at 4:00 pm.

Budrus is a stunning documentary film about Palestinian villagers, under the leadership of Ayed Morrar and his fifteen-year-old daughter, Iltezam, who adopted the strategy of non-violent resistance, united all political factions along with Israelis and stopped construction of Israel's Separation Barrier that would have destroyed the villagers' lands, cemetery and livelihood. Their nonviolent effort has inspired villages across the West Bank and East Jerusalem to adopt similar methods. Ronit Avni, Julia Bacha and Ayed Morrar will speak and present clips from the film.
