Where Olive Trees Weep Fundraiser for Gazans

This isn’t just a movie night; it’s a crucial fundraiser to help Palestinians in Gaza who urgently need our support!

All our proceeds go directly to our Palestinian friends in Gaza! That’s 45% of the ticket cost ($4.50) with 45% going to the filmmakers and 10% goes to platform. Plus, you can make an additional donation at our site — even if you can’t make the screening! Donations have slowed, and our Palestinians friends are in desperate need to survive genocide. 

Join us for a live-streamed viewing of the documentary. The virtual room opens 30 minutes before the start time, so log in between 6:30-7pm CDT. You can watch on most devices, but live chat is only available on computers.

Trailer for the documentary is also viewable on our site.

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?
