New York, New York
"Crossing the Lines" is part of a series of documentaries sponsored by the NY chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and Alternate Focus.
The program presents the rarely-acknowledged views of Israelis who oppose the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.
Manhattan residents, please WATCH THE SHOW and TELL YOUR FRIENDS.
You can find "Crossing the Lines" on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network (channel 56 if you have Time Warner Cable, or channel 108 if you have RCN).
Here's a synopsis of the program:
** Crossing the Lines **
In this elegantly produced documentary, four Israeli citizens—Father Elias Chacour, an Arab Christian priest, Sara Kaminer, an urban planner in Jerusalem, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, who opposes home demolitions, and Devorah Brous, a young activist—share their views in compelling monologues.
As they tell their stories, these articulate Israeli dissidents, with their deeply personal narratives, show a stoic persistence of hope in the face of despair.
** TUESDAY night, 6:30 pm, on MNN channels 56/108 **
