The Arab American National Museum is participating in the Cinetopia International Film Festival June 6th and June 7th. We will be screening two films (one per day). The first film is called, "My Neighbourhood" which focuses on a young boy and his family in East Jerusalem who get kicked out of half of their house by Israeli settlers. They are unexpectedly supported by other Israelis who lead protests against the expanding settlements and removal of Palestinians from their homes. Immediately following the film, we will have an in person discussion with Suhad Babaa from Just Vision, the creators of the film.
