New York City Celebrates Jenin:

Presenting Antigone in Jenin Refugee Camp & The Jenin Media Center and
Cinema School

October 16th:

On October 16, New York will be celebrating and promoting two
interconnected innovative projects:

Antigone in Jenin Refugee Camp:
Antigone in Jenin Refugee Camp is a fiction film set in the West Bank, Occupied Palestinian Territories, and based on the real-life stories of eight young students at the Freedom Theater, a theatre located in the heart of the Camp. Eight film students- four women and four men, between the ages of 19-32, ranging from secular-leftist to traditional-religious- have come together for a single project based on their own stories and struggles. They have already produced four short documentary films exploring the relationship of the Palestinian woman to her society. Now they join renowned filmmakers Juliano Mer Khamis and Udi Aloni, and prominent scriptwriter Alaa Hlehel, in order to make their first fiction film, Antigone in Jenin Refugee Camp.

The Palestinian Media & Talents Center:
The establishment of a media & talents center, a one-of-a-kind hub for young Palestinian creators, in which we will be able to create TV, Internet and cinema contents, from documentaries to miniseries and feature films. Serving all Palestinian artists from Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Israel and the Palestinian diaspora, the center aims to promote cultures of resistance without the supervision of any political parties.
