Maryse Gargour’s 61-minute film The Land Speaks Arabic documents the founding of the Zionist movement and the expulsion of Palestinians in the early part of the 20th century. The historical narrative is reconstructed by weaving archival materials such as photographs, films, news reels and official documents, with the testimonies of Palestinian survivors of the forced expulsion of 1947-48, referred to as the Nakba.
Local Palestinian-American activist Haithem El-Zabri will answer questions and moderate a discussion following the screening. The screening, which is free, is presented by Palestine Online Store.
