Beyond the Frontlines: Tales of Resistance and Resilience from Palestine U.S. film tour

“Beyond the Frontlines” is a remarkable documentary about Palestine from France, directed by Alexandra Dols. The Jerusalem-based psychiatrist Dr. Samah Jabr is the subject of a remarkable documentary film which has already achieved renown in many countries internationally.

She is a member of the USA Palestine Mental Health Network Advisory Council, and the Network is working with Jewish Voice for Peace and other organizations to bring the director, Alexandra Dols, and psychiatrist Samah Jabr, to the United States for screenings of the film.

The film will be featured at the opening of the Houston Palestine Film Festival later this month, where Dr. Jabr and Ms. Dols, the director, will be present for a discussion following the showing.
