The Collective

Since 2007, a Montreal collective has focused on the organisation of film and video events dedicated to Palestinian artistic and cultural expression: PALESTINIAN PERSPECTIVES. The first event, in Nov. 2007, marked the 60th anniversary of the Nakba (for Palestinians, the catastrophe precipitated by the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948). We celebrate the persistence and resistance of Palestinian culture through out the world and in Occupied Palestine, by sharing a selection of outstanding new audio-visual works with a broad Montreal public.
