Join us in the Robeson Cinema on Tuesdays through the end of the year to watch and discuss Palestinian liberation in film. 

Farha is a 14 year old girl who lives in a small village in Palestine, 1948. Inseparable from her best friend Farida, who lives in the city but who spends weekends in the village, Farha dreams of joining her at a school in the city. Just when Farha’s father is finally convinced and Farha’s dream is at last coming true, Zionist forces declared the establishment of the State of Israel, the Nakba. As violence escalates, Farha is brutally separated from Farida. Terrorized for his daughter’s safety and fearing for her life, Farha’s father locks her up in a concealed, small food storage space by the house, promising to return. Over the course of the next few days, Farha undergoes a life-changing experience while buried in the tight dark space, her only connection to the outside world is a small hole in the wall and a few cracks in the wooden door.
