Walled Off in Palestine: A Screening and Panel for Youth and Young Adults

Join the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum and the Chicago Freedom School for a screening of Walled Off, a 2023 film directed by Vin Arfuso. Taking its title from the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem, owned by the British artist Banksy, the film creatively explores how the history of the occupation of Palestine impacts the daily lives of people living there. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Chicago organizers. This event seeks to create space for youth and young adults to learn with one another, and for collective mourning in the wake of the current bombardment of Gaza. Refreshments will be provided.
