Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead. Mona Samouni, now 12 years old and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, now 27, represent the spirit and future of Palestinians. The film reveals the strength and hope, the humanity and humor that flourishes among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population. The film itself breaks the blockade.

Our films are free and open to the public. Each film will be followed by guided discussion. The Center for Arabic Culture is a non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the Arabic Culture in all of its regional and historic varieties and links to other culture in an open, democratic, and humanistic way.
