After our successful inaugural run in September and October 2012, we reprised the series in September 2013.

- We kept the popular format from 2012: a screening followed by a panel discussion
- The venues remained the same: The Little in the heart of Rochester NY, and St. John Fisher College.
2012 Events & Films
We started the film series based on our belief that the U.S. mainstream media don’t portray a full, consistent picture of what’s happening in Israel-Palestine. We presented a total of six films at The Little Theatre, along with area screenings at St. John Fisher College, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the School Without Walls.
