Ziad Foty, a DC native and Palestinian-American filmmaker is working on a new feature-length film which with follow his father, Fuad Foty on his first return home to Ramallah, Palestine after 40 years of life in America.

For years, Fuad has had a deep desire to return to Ramallah but fear of safety has kept him from home, until now. As the American Federation of Ramallah, Palestine, a Palestinian American organization has planned its upcoming annual convention in Ramallah for the first time ever, Fuad is determined that this time he will return home. 

This June 2014, Ziad will be shooting the Palestinian segment of this feature length documentary, incorporating the journey of other Palestinian Americans who for many like Fuad Foty, this will be their first times back home in decades.

This event will feature musical performances by local DC artists including Fuad Foty, the Palestinian musician and singer featured in the film, and his family.  The trailer for the film will also be shown and a short question and answer session about the film will take place.

A suggested donation of between $20 and $40 can be paid by donating to the Kickstarter site for the film at this link: http://kck.st/1hZGF9i
