Naila and the Uprising Artwork

CMEP has partnered with Just Vision to create a special guide for their latest documentary, Naila and the Uprising. Set during the First Intifada, the documentary chronicles the life of Naila Ayesh, a leading advocate for her people. Naila uncovers the untold story of the powerful women who were the heartbeat of the nonviolent activism during the First Intifada. The CMEP guide is meant to encourage tangible next steps your community can take as we continue to work for a just and sustainable resolution to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. Depending on date and location, a staff person from Just Vision might be able to join your screening either via video or in person. The documentary is approximately 1 hr and 15 mins. Screening fees are waved for CMEP churches.
