Creating the opportunity to watch Where Olive Trees Weep as a community and raise funds and awareness for the people of Palestine

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?

About the space

Rather than charging for tickets online we have set the price to £0 with a donation on the door instead, so please give what you can. The screening will take place in the Beacon Hall, part of the Painswick Centre. There is disabled access and a drop off area though parking at the Centre is limited so we suggest using Painswick’s main car park on Stamages lane. Doors will open at 6.30pm and the screening will begin at 7pm. The film is around 1hr 45 mins and the hall is hired for the evening so for anyone who wants, there will be a chance to discuss the film together afterwards and suggest other ideas of what we can do to help - though this is entirely optional.
