“Beyond the Frontlines” takes us on a journey both within our own minds and on the roads of Palestine, led by Jerusalem-based psychiatrist Dr. Samah Jabr. Inspired by anti-colonial psychiatrist Dr. Frantz Fanon, she exposes the psychological strategies of the Israeli occupation and their consequences and the ways in which Palestinians have learned to cope. From fragmented Palestine, women and men holding multiple identities share their stories of resistance and resilience. These women and men represent a diversity of identities, religions, sexual orientations, political cultures, social backgrounds and geographical origins. For everyday colonization does not only involve occupying land, homes, sky, or water. http://beyondthefrontlines.com/category/film/ Dr. Jabr and the film director Alexandra Dols will facilitate a discussion after the film screening.
