**Children of Fire**
50  minutes

When filmmaker Mai Masri returned to her hometown of Nablus after a 
fourteen year absence, she discovered a new generation of Palestinian 
fighters: the children of the Intifada.

Winner of the Award of Public at the Freminin Pluriel Festival, Children 
of Fire captures their courageous story on film and paints a daring 
portrait of the Palestinian uprising.

"/Dramatic, bravely filmed...if you closed your eyes you could have been 
witnessing the Nazi occupation of the Warsaw Ghetto./" - Daily Express

*Intifada *means /uprising/. The first Intifada (starting in 1987) is 
understood to be a spontaneous phenomenon (consisting mostly of rock 
throwing), in protest of Israel's brutal repression in the occupied 
territories, which included extra-judicial killings, mass detentions, 
house demolitions, deportations, etc. A second Intifada started when 
Ariel Sharon - with Likud party members and hundreds of Israeli riot 
police - visited the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. The 
compound is the third holiest site in Islam for the majority of Muslims.

Why should YOU care? It's your money that pays for the occupation & 
illegal Israeli settlements.
