Al-Istiqlal University screened the movie "Boycott", in the presence of Ms. Rola Salameh, the Director of Social Communication and Education at Just Vision Foundation.
The “Boycott” movie, directed by Julia Pasha, documents the impact of legislation in the United States which is designed to punish individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel based on its human rights record.
Furthermore, the story of the movie revolves around a group of people brought together by chance "as they are the owners of lawsuits." It presents an inspiring tale of common Americans rising to defend our rights in an era of changing politics and targeting freedom of opinion.
This artwork is produced by the American “Just Vision” Foundation, which has previously produced many films, including: “Budrus” about the popular resistance and the distinguished role of women in the village of Budrus in the Ramallah and Al-Bireh governorate, and “My Neighborhood” about the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the city of Jerusalem, and "Naela and the Intifada", which dealt with the role of Palestinian women in the first intifada - the intifada of stones.
It is noteworthy to mention that this event witnessed an enthusiastic atmosphere and mutual positive interaction between the attendees, as well as a brainstorming session and a lively discussion of the laws proposed by the film.
