Last Tuesdays: What Walaa Wants
Hosted by JAYU
Join us for a special presentation of "What Walaa Wants," followed by a Q&A with director Christy Garland.
Content warning: mentions of anti-Palestinian and anti-Israeli violence, childhood trauma, and some gun violence.
Raised in a refugee camp in the West Bank while her mother was in an Israeli prison, Walaa is determined to become one of the few women in the Palestinian Security Forces—not easy for a girl who breaks all the rules.
Following Walaa from the ages of 15 to 21 with an intimate POV, What Walaa Wants tells the compelling story of a defiant young girl who navigates formidable obstacles, disproving the negative predictions from her surroundings and the world at large.
Registration for this event includes 24-hour access to a digital screening of What Walaa Wants, and a special live Q&A with director Christy Garland.
Film includes open captions and Q&A includes ASL interpretation. An Online Held Space will be available from 8:00 - 10:00 PM EDT, complete with an active listener.
