October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Film and Q & A with Palestinian psychiatrist Dr.Samah Jabr
Beyond The Frontlines: Tales Of Resistance and Resilience from Palestine
The film portrays the work of Palestinian psychiatrist Dr.Samah Jabr who addresses people’s trauma by supporting the resistance and resilience of a people affected by the invisible wounds of war and occupation.
“ Much silence surrounds the grief of the families of Palestinian
fighters. The Palestinians perceive the Israeli authorities as taking sadistic satisfaction in our suffering. In response, the Palestinians often present a tough exterior, masking their emotions and effacing all signs of vulnerability in the face of those who killed their loved ones. Some Palestinians go further, trying to avoid inflicting further pain on their family members by holding their grief to themselves.”
