For A Free Palestine: Films By Palestinian Women Presents Free Movies, Livestream for Charity

Rarely do good causes and great deals go hand in hand, but For a Free Palestine: Films by Palestinian Women—the free program from Another Gaze/Another Screen—hits the sweet spot. Aiming at “facilitating medical, legal, and infrastructure aid on the ground in Gaza, with secondary funds going to supporting filmmaking initiatives in Gaza, such as the restoration of older Palestinian films, cultural centers for refugees in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and more,” the charitable programming series offers dozens of films for free viewing and a livestreamed Q&A event featuring many of its filmmakers.

That June 7 event, which will stream on the site’s Facebook page, begins at 3 PM EST and will include filmmakers like Larissa Sansour, Rosalind Nashashibi, Emily Jacir, Heiny Srour, Basma AlSharif, Razan AlSalah, Mahasen Nasser-Eldin, Oraib Toukan, Mona Benyamin, Layaly Badr, Shuruq Harb, Reem Shilley, Pary El-Qalqili and Aida Ka’adan discussing their movies, answering questions and performing readings.

“This extensive selection of work by Palestinian women filmmakers from the 1970s to the present day is testimony to the power of resistance and resilience of anti-colonial filmmaking across generations, geographies, and forms,” said curator Daniella Shreir in a press release. “Beyond images of destruction and trauma, these filmmakers offer infinite ways of seeing the Occupation, proposing strategies including reverie, fantasy, and humor, and engaging both with the archive and new technologies. It is a real honor to bring these artists and filmmakers into conversation with each other.”

The program runs until June 18, with a full list of the films to be included below. Donations are accepted here.
