Join us for Closing Night at Take One Action Film Festival for the Scottish Premiere of Naila and the Uprising. Most images of the first Intifada are of stone-throwing Palestinian youths facing off Israeli tanks. This hopeful documentary tells the story that history overlooked, and pays tribute to the thousands of women whose grassroots organising was the beating heart of this spontaneous uprising. Beyond the screen The film’s main protagonist, Naila Ayesh, founder and director of the Women’s Affair Centre in Gaza will lead a post-film discussion. Join us for inspiring conversations and opportunities for creative, effective action.
