As the genocide in Gaza continues, please join us in East Austin to raise funds, take collective action, and learn more about the history of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

You can select a ticket or a donation to get admission, and the donations are sliding scale. Feel free to offer however much you're able. Everything counts! The screening will begin at 7pm followed by a group discussion. We will have materials for poster making (for an upcoming protest or to put in front of your home / business) and resources to help email and send letters your Congressional representatives.

Between Two Crossings is a documentary film that follows the journey of a Palestinian student from Gaza, Nour, who had a scholarship to enroll in Portland State University in the United States. In order to be there, Nour struggled to find a way to travel through the only two gates separating the Gaza Strip from the rest of the world: Erez Checkpoint, controlled by Israel; and Rafah Crossing, controlled by Egypt.

This documentary was directed by Palestinian journalist and filmmaker from Gaza, Yasser Murtaja, who was shot and killed by an Israeli sniper while covering the protest of Great March of Return on April 6, 2018.

We will also screen a portion of Gaza Fights for Freedom (2019). Directed by Abby Martin, this documentary details the violent suppression of the peaceful protests during the Great March of Return, as well as providing insight to the Israeli / US propaganda machine. This film contains some triggering imagery. This event will be hosted by Sahar Studios and Jewish Voices for Peace. If you have any questions please DM @sahar.studios on Instagram.
