Winner of Best Documentary at Respect Human Rights Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Radiance of Resistance tells the story of how Palestinian Janna Ayyad, 9 years old, and Ahed Tamimi, 14 years old, have gained international recognition for their creative resistance to Israeli incursion into their village Nabi Saleh. In December 2017 Ahed Tamimi (now 17) was arrested by the Israeli Defense Force and continues to be held in a military detention center. Her arrest has prompted international protests and news coverage.
The event launches a campaign to pass U.S. House Resolution 4391, ensuring that U.S. dollars do not fund Israeli military detention of Palestinian children. After the film a panel of speakers will lead a discussion.
The film is an intimate look at their everyday lives and their importance as part of the new generation of Palestinian non-violent resistance. “Nabi Saleh images illustrate changing asymmetry of Israeli-Palestinian conflict:”–The Guardian
