Human Rights Watch is excited to host the Los Angeles Premiere of <<Naila and the Uprising>> on September 26th and we hope to see you there! By looking at the little-known yet instrumental role of women during the First Intifada, the movie opens a window into issues still at stake in today's conflict in Israel and Palestine.
Join us starting at 6:15 pm at Santa Monica's Aero Theatre for Mediterranean food and drinks and stay after the movie for an engaging discussion with director Julia Bacha, producer Rula Salameh, and Human Rights Watch's Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa Division Eric Goldstein.
6:15 pm | Doors open; Hors-d’oeuvres & drinks

When an uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 1987, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. Naila and the Uprising chronicles the remarkable real-life journey of Naila Ayesh, a key figure in the First Intifada, which forced the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time. Using evocative animation, intimate interviews, and exclusive archival footage, this film tells the story the mainstream media missed: of a courageous clandestine women’s movement at the head of Palestinians’ struggle for freedom, bringing out of anonymity the courageous women activists whose contributions and sacrifices changed history, but whose stories have remained untold until now.
“Stories like Naila’s remind us of a third way: one of nonviolent resistance led by self-reliant, democratic, gender-equal communities.” — The Nation
