The new film, Radiance of Resistance tells the story of Janna Ayyad 9 years old, and Ahed Tamimi 14 years old, who live under military occupation in Nabi Saleh, Palestine. Janna Ayyad has been called the youngest journalist in Palestine. Ahed is one of many Palestinian children unjustly incarcerated in an Israeli Prison for opposing colonial occupation on her land. As Bassem Tamimi said, “Ahed is a representation of a new generation of our people, of young freedom fighters.” This film will take an intimate look at their everyday lives and their importance as the new generation of Palestinian non-violent resistance. In 2017, Radiance of Résistance won Best documentary at the Respect for Human Rights Film Festival.

This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. In acknowledging this, we must be in solidarity with the struggles of the peoples of the territory in which we occupy.
