SEP 26: CO-PRESENTATION AT TORONTO PALESTINIAN FILM FESTIVAL
We are proud to be co-presenting This Is My Land at the Toronto Palestinian Film Festival on Saturday, September 26 at 2PM at Jackman Hall - AGO.

How do the Palestinian and Israeli (Arab and Jewish) education systems teach the history of their nations? This Is My Land follows several Israeli and Palestinian teachers over one academic year in schools set in Jerusalem, Northern Israel, Nablus, Ramallah and a settlement. The film interweaves the stories of the teachers and their classes in parallel, revealing the different and sometimes opposing universes of the teachers and their schools. Through observing their exchanges and confrontations with students, debates with the ministries curriculum, and its restrictions, the viewers obtain an intimate glimpse into the profound and long lasting effect that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict transmits onto the next generation.
