Full programme details from [4]the YPCE website or the Showroom programme.

The opening event, May 7th, 7pm at the Showroom, is an exciting opportunity to hear Haim Bresheeth talk on cultural resistance and film. Haim is a renowned film maker and academic who boycotted an Israeli film festival of which he was asked to be chair, in support of Palestinian film makers not invited to the festival.

This talk will be followed by The USA vs Al-Arian, an award winning documentary, following the struggles of a Palestinian journalist in the USA. Again full details from [5]the YPCE website

Attached a leaflet for the opening event. Please help us by forwarding to friends or print out and distribute at work or clubs etc.
