New Sheikh Jarrah Video from Just Vision

Just Vision, the folks I interned for last spring, are out with, “Home Front is a new series of four video portraits chronicling the resolve of a neighborhood, and the support it receives from the most unexpected of places.” It documents different Israelis and Palestinians involved in the Sheikh Jarrah movement, including a Palestinian teenager whose family who was evicted. TOD’s own Amir Terkel worked on the film. It is a wonderful primer on the movement, well worth the half hour or so to watch all four.

The mother of Sara Benninga, who has been featured on this site, appears in the second video.

You can read more interviews on the Home Front site.
