Palestine Under Siege: Film and discussion

The film ‘Palestine Under Siege’ is a new documentary film which takes you into the heart of the struggle for Palestinian self-determination.

Filmed in June and July 2023, in both the West Bank and Jerusalem, this 60 minute film features Australians, Dr Peter Slezak, UNSW Honorary Associate Professor of Philosophy and his two companions, Rand Darwish, Australian Palestinian student and former Greens Senator, Lee Rhiannon. The filmmakers spent time talking to Palestinians and Jews in Lebanon and Palestine on the themes of the 1948 Nakba, settler colonialism and the apartheid nature of the Israeli state.

The film will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with one of the filmmakers, Dr. Peter Slezak, Honorary Associate Professor of Philosophy at UNSW; Safaa Rayan, Illawarra resident, Palestinian, and social worker; and Federal Greens Senator Dr. Mehreen Faruqi.

This is a unique opportunity to view this recently completed film and ask questions.

Light refreshments will be available after the film.

Tickets for this event are free! There will be an opportunity on the nights to make donations to the Australian Palestine Advocacy Network (APAN) and the Illawarra Greens Wollongong City Council Campaign.

Film length is 60 minutes followed by a Q&A panel discussion.

*Please note the contents of the film may not be appropriate for young children.
