Followed by questions and discussion led by Ben White, author of ‘Israeli Aparthied: A Beginner’s Guide’ and co-ordinator of the Amos Trust initiative ‘A Just Peace for Palestine’.

Ayed Morrar, an unlikely community organiser, unites Palestinians from all political factions to save his village from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier.

Victory seems improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women’s contingent that quickly moves to the frontlines.

Struggling side by side, father and daughter unleash an inspiring yet little-known movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories that is still gaining ground today.

An action-filled documentary chronicling this movement from its infancy, BUDRUS shines a light on people who choose nonviolence to confront a threat to their way of life.
