Two short documentaries featuring the music and embroidery of Palestine aired. Middle Eastern pastries and coffee will also be served.
At 7:00 PM the film Rana's Wedding will be shown. This 2002 film portrays the Palestinian conflict through the eyes of a young woman who, with only ten hours to marry, must negotiate her way around roadblocks, soldiers, stone-throwers, overworked officials and into the heart of an elusive lover. The film is in Arabic with English subtitles and runs 90 minutes.
