Where Olive Trees Weep film screening

June 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

This premiere screening is presented by Students for a Liberated Palestine / Al-Zeitoun University
Proceeds from this screening will be donated to the Obeid Family Fundraiser

Where Olive Trees Weep offers a searing window into the struggles and resilience of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. It explores themes of loss, trauma, and the quest for justice.

We follow, among others, Palestinian journalist and therapist Ashira Darwish, grassroots activist Ahed Tamimi, and Israeli journalist Amira Hass. We also witness Dr. Gabor Maté offer trauma-healing work to a group of women who were tortured in Israeli prisons.

Ancient landscapes bear deep scars, having witnessed the brutal reality of ancestral land confiscation, expulsions, imprisonment, home demolitions, water deprivation, and denial of basic human rights. Yet, through the veil of oppression, we catch a glimpse of resilience—deep roots that have carried the Palestinian people through decades of darkness and shattered lives.

This emotional journey bares the humanity of the oppressed while grappling with the question: what makes the oppressor so ruthlessly blind to its own cruelty?

This screening is supported by Independent Jewish Voices – Halifax,  The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op and Mayworks Kjipuktuk/Halifax.
