*Silenced when it was first released in 1981, today
/Occupied Palestine /seems eerily prescient and offers a unique record 
of a pre-Intifada era*

screened in the US in 1981, the theater received bomb threats and had to 
evacuate and terminate the show after 10 minutes. After that, film 
distributors wouldn't even look at the film, and the media would not 
touch it.

BPFF revives this singular documentary, rediscovered earlier this year 
by the London Palestine Film Festival, for its first public US screening 
since then. You can see it for free at Harvard Law School next week and 
engage in conversation with Director David Koff, who will attend and 
engage with the audience. A few of the other notable films featured in 
next week's free screenings on Monday and Tuesday are listed below.
