“Radiance of Resistance” tells the story of Janna Ayyad, 9 years old, and Ahed Tamimi, 14 years old (the film was made in 2015 and 2016), who live under military occupation in the village of Nabi Saleh, Palestine. Janna Ayyad is the youngest journalist in Palestine, and Ahed has won awards for her activism for Palestine. She is involved in the Palestinian popular resistance and the fact that she is currently imprisoned has made her a prominent symbol of resistance. The film depicts their daily life and their role as a new generation of Palestinian strugglers.
The film will be screened in the presence of the director, Jesse Roberts, as well as with the participation of human rights activist and Unadikum coordinator, Manu Pineda. The event will also include a Skype call with Bassem Tamimi, the father of Ahed, from Palestine.
