On November 28th at 7:30pm (ET), Independent Jewish Voices (IJV) and Cinema Politica warmly welcome you to a film screening of DEIR YASSIN REMEMBERED, followed by a discussion with director and IJV member b.h. Yael.
This event will be accessible worldwide by registration through Zoom.
DEIR YASSIN REMEMBERED considers the repercussions of a largely forgotten massacre of approximately 100 Palestinians in 1948. The video not only gives an account of what happened at Deir Yassin, but also argues for the need of acknowledgement of the ongoing Nakba and for commemoration.
b.h. Yael is an Israeli born Canadian filmmaker and installation artist based in Toronto. She is Professor of Integrated Media at OCAD University and teaches in the Art & Social Change minor as well. Yael’s films and installations have dealt with the many intersections of identity and family; they have focused on activist initiatives in Palestine/Israel; as well as apocalypse, geopolitical and environmental urgencies. Yael is an enthusiastic member of Independent Jewish Voices.
