*Sucha Normal Thing -
**A Simple Journey into the Israeli-Occupied West Bank*
80 minutes

"We are human beings and we feel," reflects a Palestinian hotel manager. 
Capturing the voice of individual Palestinians, internationals, and 
Israeli peace activists, /Sucha Normal Thing/ documents untold stories 
of ordinary people amidst the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Filmed in the fall of 2003 by American filmmaker Rebecca Glotfelty, 
/Sucha Normal Thing/ vividly explores visceral moments of life and death 
under occupation. >From the busy cities of Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, 
and Nablus, to the villages of Sa'aer and Zbuba, /Sucha Normal Thing/ 
brings forth stories of Palestinians struggling to maintain a normal 
existence under Israeli occupation as well as Israelis, Palestinians, 
and internationals working non-violently toward peace.

/Sucha Normal Thing/ captures the uncertainty of a "normal" day for the 
filmmaker and the Palestinian farmers,children, doctors, teachers and 
others living and working in the West Bank. Amidst stories of fear, 
anger, and hopelessness, exist moving stories of humans determined to 
persevere, to rise above the situation, to remain hopeful despite the 
uncertainty of daily life. A Palestinian father declares, "I want my 
children to be free, think free, not to be caged in the occupational 
culture." Hopeful for a life of freedom from the occupation.

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

"/People are scared in the U.S. to say 'wrong is wrong,' because the 
pro-Israeli lobby [AIPAC] is powerful---very powerful. Well, so what? 
For goodness sake, this is God's world. We live in a moral universe. The 
Apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists/." 
~ *Desmond Tutu*
