About the event

Where Olive Trees Weep offers a searing window into the struggles and resilience of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. It explores themes of loss, trauma, and the quest for justice.Where Olive Trees Weep follows Palestinian journalist and therapist Ashira Darwish, grassroots activist Ahed Tamimi, and Israeli journalist Amira Hass. We also watch as Dr. Gabor Maté supports a group of women seeking understanding and healing.

Ticket sales & donations from the inis Mór screening will be split between two families (as direct support, instead of through organisations who are quite slow and unable to cross Rafah at present), that of:1) Sabr Zaneen (a community worker from North Gaza, who was wounded while visiting a friend in Al Awda hospital, when it was bombed, and whose leg was amputated) money towards a prosthetic leg.2) That of Ons, a beautiful and wise young Gazan student who was in Ireland years ago, in an Irish Aid scholarship, to study, but is in Gaza with her family, and they're raising funds to try to evacuate across Rafah, once the border opens.

About the film

Where Olive Trees Weep offers a searing window into the struggles and resilience of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. It explores themes of loss, trauma, and the quest for justice.We follow, among others, Palestinian journalist and therapist Ashira Darwish, grassroots activist Ahed Tamimi, and Israeli journalist Amira Hass. We witness Dr. Gabor Maté offering trauma-healing work for a group of women who have been tortured in Israeli prisons. Ancient landscapes bear deep scars, having witnessed the brutal reality of ancestral land confiscation, expulsions, imprisonment, home demolitions, water deprivation, and denial of basic human rights. Yet, through the veil of oppression, we catch a glimpse of resilience—deep roots that have carried the Palestinian people through decades of darkness and shattered lives.This emotional journey bares the humanity of the oppressed while grappling with the question: what makes the oppressor so ruthlessly blind to its own cruelty?
