Naila and the Uprising Los Angeles Premiere | Human Rights Watch
6:15 pm | Doors open, Pre-Reception
7:00 pm | Movie, followed by Q&A
8:45 pm | Dessert Reception
When an uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 1987, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. Naila and the Uprising chronicles the remarkable real-life journey of Naila Ayesh, a key figure in the First Intifada, which forced the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time.
Using evocative animation, intimate interviews, and exclusive archival footage, this film tells the story the mainstream media missed: of a courageous clandestine womens movement at the head of Palestinians struggle for freedom, bringing out of anonymity the courageous women activists whose contributions and sacrifices changed history, but whose stories have remained untold until now.
All attendees are invited to join a pre-movie reception where light food will be served, and a dessert reception following the Q&A where they can continue the conversation with our panelists: director Julia Bacha, producer Rula Salameh, and HRW's Middle East and North Africa division deputy director, Eric Goldstein.
