Join us at The People’s Forum for our Freedom Summer Film Series!
As we begin the partial reopening of our space, every Friday evening in May we will show a film in our screening room at 50% capacity.
This is a free, educational program, however, in order to maintain a safe capacity level, we ask that you leave a $6 deposit to reserve your participation. You will be refunded your deposit upon arrival or if you cancel. Please have your confirmation email ready when you arrive.
Freedom Summer Films is a series that aims to explore the humanity and the creativity of the many struggles against imperialism, colonialism, capitalism at home and abroad, and we hope to leave inspired for a future of liberation through community and love. We know that cultural expression is one of the most powerful forms of political education, and we hope you join us for these collective viewings!
FREEDOM SUMMER FILM SERIES: When I Saw You
About the movie
A refugee camp in Jordan, 1967. Like thousands of Palestinians forced from their homes by Israeli expansion, 11-year-old Tarek (Mahmoud Asfa) waits in vain for the day when he’ll be able to return to his old life and, more importantly, his missing father. Frustrated by his overprotective mother Ghaydaa (Ruba Blal), Tarek flees the camp and heads off cross-country, stumbling into a settlement run by Palestinian volunteer militia.
