November 30: Welcome to Hebron
Discussant: Terje Carlsson (filmmaker)

Leila Sarsour is a student at the Al-Qurtuba-school, a Palestinian high school for girls. The school is surrounded by Israeli military installations and settlements. Welcome to Hebron shows how the occupation affects everyday life in Palestine. Leila does not fit the widespread western stereotype of Arab women which characterizes them as weak and victimized. Leila is strong, intelligent and outspoken and yearns for a daily life free from oppression and violence. She retains a belief and hope in peace and justice. She refuses to let bitterness and hatred to control her life: “We can all live together. Muslim, Jew or Christian, there is no reason to hate each other,” she says in Terje Carlsson’s documentary. 55 min.
