Hop on over to the Crest Theater in Sacramento on 3 Oct for a special screening of Where should the birds fly? Fida Qishta will be there for two Q & A forums, one at 5:30, another at 8 pm.
Mona Samouni was 10 when the Israeli military bombed her home, killing her parents and additional family members in the three-week assault on Gaza known as Operation Cast Lead in December 2008 and January 2009.Fida Qishta, born and raised in Rafah, Gaza, began her filmmaking career as a wedding videographer and soon moved on to work with international human rights observers and media in Gaza, documenting day to day life under siege with her commentaries and video reports.
Where Should the Birds Fly? is a compilation from those reports and additional footage shot by Qishta and her Palestinian crew, carefully organized and narrated to contextualize the film’s primary focus: the emotional and psychological effects of the Israeli attacks on Mona, her surviving family and friends, including the filmmaker herself.
Fida Qishta will be at this event to speak about her experience along with a screening of her film.
