Exploring the Israel-Palestine Conflict Through Film: A Series
The Mideast Working Group and the Adult Education Committee of Boston Workmen's Circle invite you to attend a screening of The Law in These Parts at the BWC building at 7 PM on Wednesday, January 20. This is the last in a five-film series designed to broaden an understanding of the Israel-Palestine conflict for people just starting to learn about the issue as well as for seasoned activists.
The Law in These Parts (Ra'anan Alexandrowicz, Palestine/Israel, 2011, 100 min.) chronicles Israel's 43-year military legal system in the Occupied Palestinian Territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The story unfolds through interviews with the architects of this legal system juxtaposed with historical footage showing the enactment of these laws upon the Palestinian population.
