Berkeley premiere of "Cultures of Resistance" by Iara Lee
The Middle East Children's Alliance & the Arab Film Festival are pleased to present the Berkeley premiere of bay area filmmaker & activist Iara Lee's new feature film, "Cultures of Resistance," on Thursday June 30, 7pm at Berkeley City College, 2050 Center Street. The film won Best Documentary at the Tiburon International Film Festival and is showing around the globe, from Portugal to China to Ethiopia. Journeying through five continents, it captures the stories of creative change-makers striving to turn our upside down world right side up, for peace with justice. Their personal stories and strategies, told in many tongues, broaden our understanding of the geopolitical fault-lines behind modern day conflicts -- inspiring audiences to further engagement and action. Benefit for clean water for children in Gaza, tickets $10 and $8.
