Richmond Adult Community College
Hosted by Richmond & Kingston PSC
Dr Tania Mathias, who replaced Vince Cable as MP for Twickenham, talks about her time working in Gaza with UNRWA following a screening of the multiple award winning film, Where Should the Birds Fly.
Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead. Mona Samouni, now 12 years old and the filmmaker, Fida Qishta, now 27, represent the spirit and future of Palestinians. It reveals the strength and hope, the humanity and humor that flourishes among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population.
