Just Vision announces the Cleveland premiere of its new film, BUDRUS. Hailed in the New York Times as "this year's must-see documentary" and featured in major international news outlets, BUDRUS tells the story of a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites members of all factions along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction. Success looks improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines.

Discussion of this important film will follow showing. Discussion facilitated by Cleveland Peace Action on January 21 - download flyer - and J-Street, Cleveland Chapter on January 23 - download flyer
