The Nakba, Arabic for “catastrophe,” describes the dispossession of the Palestinian people in 1948 and is commemorated on May 15. “The Land Speaks Arabic” documents the founding of the Zionist movement and the expulsion of Palestinians in the early 20th century using photographs, films, news reels, and official documents, along with the testimonies of Palestinian survivors. Following the film, local Palestinian activists will discuss the impact of the Nakba on their lives and their vision for the future.

The screening is sponsored by the Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights in Austin. More information on the Facebook event page.
