*Children of Fire* 50 minutes

When filmmaker Mai Masri returned to her hometown of Nablus after a fourteen year absence, she discovered a new generation of Palestinian fighters: the children of the Intifada.

Winner of the Award of Public at the Freminin Pluriel Festival, Children of Fire captures their courageous story on film and paints a daring portrait of the Palestinian uprising.

"Dramatic, bravely filmed...if you closed your eyes you could have been witnessing the Nazi occupation of the Warsaw Ghetto." - Daily Express

Intifada means uprising. The first Intifada (starting in 1987) is understood to be a spontaneous phenomenon (consisting mostly of rock throwing), in protest of the jewish states brutal repression in the occupied territories, which included extra-judicial killings, mass detentions, house demolitions, deportations, etc. A second Intifada started when Ariel Sharon - with Likud party members and hundreds of jewish riot police - visited the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. The compound is the third holiest site in Islam for the majority of Muslims.

Why should YOU care? It’s your money that pays for the occupation & illegal jewish settlements.
