About the event

Join us in the Lecture Hall of Ipswich County Library where we are screening this important film followed by a Q&A. Our ticket price is in USD because that is the only currency that this platform currently offers, with the current exchange rate this is approx £11. Your ticket price will be split as follows: 10% to this Kinema platform, 45% to the filmmakers for the licence fee, leaving 45% to cover our event costs with any profits being donated to Palestine Children's Relief Fund.

After the screening local author and yoga teacher Lou Hart will moderate a Q&A following guidelines provided by the filmmakers, with representatives from PSC Ipswich and Colchester Action for Palestine. This is an inclusive event intended to help increase awareness about the reality of life in Gaza and Occupied Palestine. This is not a forum for political debate, but rather an opportunity to gather together and discuss the themes raised by the film in a supportive environment.

Herbal tea will be provided. This is an alcohol-free event. Attendees are welcome to bring their own non-smelly snacks for consumption on the premises but please be mindful of others and take rubbish away with you.

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?
