Homeland

Center for Russian, East European, & Eurasian Studies

Review of film: "Visually striking, but narratively undernourished, the father-and-son-bonding drama “Homeward” unfolds against the backdrop of a fraught road trip from Kyiv to Russia-annexed Crimea and marks a flawed debut from young Ukrainian helmer-writer Nariman Aliev, a Crimean Tatar. Indeed, the plight of Crimean Tatars (both historically and currently) forms an important element of the plot.

Khader El-Yateem was born in Bethlehem. He was a 19-year-old theology student when Israeli police raided his home, woke him from sleep, arrested him without charge and subjected him to 57 days in solitary confinement. His brother-in-law, an international attorney, was able to secure Khader’s release. Khader went on to complete his studies and was ordained a priest in the Lutheran Church. In 1992, he was sent by the Lutheran Bishop of Jerusalem to Brooklyn, New York, to minister to the large Arab immigrant population there.

Witness Palestine Film Festival: IT’S WHAT WE DO

Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 7:00pm

Witness Palestine Rochester

Courageous veterans of the Israeli military have come forward to testify to the violence that they were ordered to carry out against Palestinians living under occupation. House demolitions, night raids of Palestinian homes, arrest and detention of children, and other human rights abuses are routine. In 2004, Israeli Defense Forces veterans, who have seen and participated in these atrocities, formed Breaking the Silence, whose purpose is to bring these stories to the Israeli public. The film, based on a play, presents verbatim testimonies of former Israeli soldiers.
