The New Israel Fund, B’Tselem USA and The Foundation for Middle East Peace present:

A Night of Visual Impact: The Boy from H2 and B’Tselem’s Camera Project

A Screening of The Boy from H2 followed by a conversation with Helen Yanovsky, filmmaker and B’Tselem’s Archive Manager, Chelsey Berlin, B’Tselem USA’s Director, and moderated by Ori Nir, Americans for Peace Now’s Director of Communications and Public Engagement.

Monday, November 6th at 6:30pm at Busboys and Poets: 5th and KTwelve-year-old Muhammad Burqan lives in H2, an area of Hebron in which 40,000 Palestinians contend with a restrictive regime imposed by Israel as a result of the some 800 Israeli settlers living in the same area. Nearly every day, Israeli soldiers in H2 detain Palestinian children on suspicion of stone-throwing. Muhammad, who has nine brothers and sisters, is one of those children. His life revolves around his crowded home and the street, where he constantly finds himself getting into trouble.

Created in collaboration with B’Tselem’s field researchers and camera project volunteers, The Boy from H2 seamlessly juxtaposes filmmaker Helen Yanovsky’s professional observation and real time documentation by local residents. The result is an intimate portrayal of Palestinian life in Hebron through the story of an extraordinary boy.

Please join us after the screening for a conversation with filmmaker Helen Yanovsky and B’Tselem USA Director Chelsey Berlin, moderated by Ori Nir of Americans for Peace Now.
