Shadia Mansour and members of DAM will speak about */Hip Hop and the 
Occupation of Palestine/* after the screening.

/Pizza and refreshments after screening./

This film documents a 10-day journey that the artists took through 
Palestine, teaching and performing non-violent resistance through the arts.




The tour included M1 of Dead Prez, Shadia Mansour, Marcel Cartier, Mazzi 
of S.O.U.L. Purpose, DJ Vega Benetton, Lowkey, .... etc.

The group stayed in the heart of Balata refugee camp at the Yafa 
Cultural Center in Nablus. There, they witneeded night raids, toured 
places like Hebron where there are separate roads for Arabs and Jews, 
met families of Palestinians who have been slain as well as jailed, 
wounded, and humiliated. The group visits Bi'lin where they get shot at 
and teargassed and experience first-hand what it feels like living under 
occupation.
