Ciné Résistance - The Palestinian Cause: «Salt of This Sea» by Annemarie Jacir
Ciné Résistance at soso: The Palestinian Cause
"Salt of This Sea" by Annemarie Jacir (105min)
Soraya, born in Brooklyn in a working class community of Palestinian refugees, discovers that her grandfather’s savings were frozen in a bank account in Jaffa when he was exiled in 1948. Stubborn, passionate and determined to reclaim what is hers, she fulfills her life-long dream of “returning” to Palestine. Once there, slowly she is taken apart by the reality around her and is forced to confront her own anger. She meets Emad, a young Palestinian whose ambition, contrary to hers, is to leave forever. Tired of the constraints that dictate their lives, they know in order to be free, they must take things into their own hands, even if it’s illegal. In this quest for life, we follow their trail through remains of Palestine > https://www.philistinefilms.com/sots
soso.space launches a new format: Ciné Résistance.
On Tuesday evenings, soso.space will be screening motion pictures and documentaries viewing global history, issues and causes from the perspective of the oppressed, starting on 30 January with a film series about Palestine and the Palestinian cause.
The movies and documentaries shown will all be selected and – if possible - presented by people affected by the cause. We hope to create a space, where people affected, their allies and people interested to understand history and context of ongoing issues can meet. The bar will stay open after the movie screenings and offer space for discussions for everyone who wants to stay for a drink.
These movie screenings are Soli-events. Every contribution to run the event is voluntary. The collected funds at the door will be going to an organization related to the cause shown in the screening in full. The bar revenue will be used to pay for the expenses of the event.
Ciné Résistance wants to provide a safer space for people to come together, talk, share thoughts or just watch a movie and get inspired. We certainly encourage SWANA-people to join.
Ciné Résistance is preparing a list of links and information about Palestine/Gaza and the ongoing genocide in order to give people the possibility to educate themselves if required. Until further notice, the evenings on the topic of Palestine are taking place on a weekly basis.
soso.space will provide a bar at low cost, tea and snacks for free. Before and after the screening, curated music will be played, selected by artists close to the cause.
