Plants, People, & Apartheid Film Series: Foragers

May 7 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Film Synopsis: Directed by Jumana Manna, Foragers depicts the dramas around the practice of foraging for wild edible plants in Palestine with wry humor and a meditative pace. Shot in the Golan Heights, the Galilee and Jerusalem, it employs fiction, documentary and archival footage to portray the impact of Israeli nature protection laws on these customs.

Plants, People, and Apartheid is a film series that will raise awareness about the culture and political experiences of Palestinian people beyond the headlines, viewers will meet farmers, foragers, and adventurous children in three independent documentaries that give background and humanize the current situation in Gaza.

Connecting Adirondackers to Palestinians through environmental film topics, 100% of donations collected at these screenings will support three families attempting to evacuate from and survive day-to-day in Gaza as they work to access visas, travel fare, food, and other necessary supplies. Organizers of this event have personal connections involved with each of these campaigns.

Hosted at Saint Eustace Church in Lake Placid on Tuesday evenings this spring and organized by members of PS: Letters for a Ceasefire, this series will raise money for three Palestinian families working to evacuate from Gaza. Attendance is free, but donations are strongly encouraged.
