NAILA AND THE UPRISING
2017, Just Vision Films, 76 min, USA/Palestine, Dir: Julia Bacha

When a nationwide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family and freedom. Undaunted, she embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time. NAILA AND THE UPRISING chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women at the frontlines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history: the First Intifada in the late 1980s. Using evocative animation, intimate interviews and exclusive archival footage, this empowering documentary spotlights the courageous women activists who have remained on the margins of history - until now.
