Naila and the Uprising


Stranger Says:

By focusing on Naila Ayesh, documentarian Julia Bacha captures the Palestinian struggle from a distinctly feminist perspective. Naila grew up in the West Bank under Israeli occupation (lyrical animation stands in for incidents for which Bacha lacked primary source material). When the military demolished her home in 1969, a resistance fighter emerged. In college, she met activist Jamal Zakout, who became her husband. While starting a family, they fought in the First Intifada and suffered harsh reprisals. Even after the authorities deported men by the thousands, she kept going, encouraging female self-reliance in every way. She is a truly inspirational figure.
