Film showing:JERUSALEM: EAST SIDE STORY

In 1948, the western part of the city of Jerusalem fell under Israeli control; in 1967, the eastern part fell under Israeli
occupation. Since then, Israel has pursued a policy to ensure that Jerusalem has lost its Palestinian identity. Part of this
policy is to drive Palestinian Muslims and Christians out of the city; denying their presence, history, and ties to the land.
The documentary takes you on a journey exposing Israel’s policy to gain supremacy and hegemony over the city and its
inhabitants. It also touches on the future of the city: Jerusalem is the key to peace; without Jerusalem, there is no peace for
anyone.
The film includes interviews with Palestinian and Israeli leaders, human rights activists and political analysts.
