Denison University's 13th Annual Human Rights Film Festival kicks off with Gaza Surf Club at 7pm in Slayter Auditorium (room 400). This 2016 documentary was filmed in the Gaza Strip. Situated between Egypt and Israel, Gaza’s youth are drawn to their beaches. Weary of the daily ‘state of emergency’ they seek meaning and perspective to their lives through surfing.
Directed by Philip Gnadt and Mickey Yamine the film is 87 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Isis Nusair.
All film showings are free and open to the public.
The following film will be 500 Years: Life in Resistance on Feb 13th at 7pm, also in Slayter Auditorium. That film tells 'of the mounting resistance in Guatemala's recent history through the actions and perspectives of the majority indigenous Mayan population, who now stand poised to reimagine their society.'
