Movie screening: On the Side of the Road
Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 @ 17:30 - 19:00
The Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg in co-operation with Cinema Politica welcomes you to the screening of the documentary ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.
Lia Tarachansky grew up in a settlement. When the second Intifadah broke out in 2000 her family moved to Canada. There, for the first time she met Palestinians and “discovered” their history and learned why they were fighting Israel in the first place.
In this film she meets with those who played a personal role in the events of 1948 and like her, “discovered” that which they had not only erased from their consciousness, but erased from the map. For years she tries to convince veterans of the 1948 that set off the conflict as we know it today to face the most difficult questions and dig deep into their memories. This is a film about the questions Israelis cannot ask, about memories that cannot be uncovered, and the history that’s fighting to come to light.
The screening is free and open to everyone.
