First Annual Boston Palestine Film Festival

September 29 – October 7, 2007Organized by Tawassul

This festival features a range of compelling and thought-provoking documentaries, dramatic features, rare early works (1969 to 1980), and new films by emerging artists. These films from international directors bring an honest, self-described, and independent view of Palestine and its diasporic society, culture, and political travails.
