“The Talk of Return"

Saturday July 18, 2009 @ 7:00 PM
Al-Awda Center, 2734 Loker Avenue West Suite K, Carlsbad CA 92010

This event is open to all. Admission free. Donations welcome

Synopsis: "The Talk of Return" is Part V of "Chronicles of a Refugee", a groundbreaking six part powerful and engaging documentary series by Perla Issa, Aseel Mansour and Adam Shapiro. The series is directly relevant to the Right to Return Movement including Al-Awda's advocacy for the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their lands and homes of origin.

Through interviews and archival footage, "The Talk of Return" explores the effectiveness of work done previously for achieving the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes. This must see episode also looks at how, nowadays, Palestinian refugees around the world are responding to the institutional stagnation in implementing their Right of Return. There are many good lessons and warnings in the documentary stated by fellow Palestinians in their own words.

This documentary is very important and timely viewing for all who advocate for the Palestinian right to return and who correctly insist on keeping the Right to Return central to any discussion of the Palestinian cause.

The film showing will be followed by a discussion to share opinions and insight.

Some interviews in "The Talk of Return" were filmed at Al-Awda Center in Carlsbad by Perla Issa and Adam Shapiro in March 2008.
