"The Iron Wall,” a revealing examination of the Israeli settlement movement, will be shown at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 22, at the Sol Collective, 2574 21st Street, Sacramento (a block south of Broadway).
The film is part of a monthly series sponsored by the Sacramento chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace. Admission is free, but donations are requested.
After 1967 and the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, the aim of the Israeli settlement movement became clear – create facts on the ground and make the creation of a Palestinian state impossible. There are now more than 200 settlements and outposts scattered throughout the West Bank.
“The Iron Wall” examines this phenomenon, looking at the settlements and their impact on the peace process. The documentary also touches on the latest project to make the settlements a permanent fact on the ground – the massive wall that Israel is building.
Directed by Mohammed Alatar, the film was produced by the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees (PARC), a non-governmental organization that supports Palestinian farmers with technical, financial and moral support. PARC also works on social development, women’s empowerment, youth issues, and the environment.
Films in the series are shown the fourth Wednesday of each month. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
