On The Side of the Road: Screening and Discussion with Director Lia Tarachansky

Sunday December 7, 7:00PM @ 2640

Join director Lia Tarachansky as she presents her documentary On the Side of the Road.
 
Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israelis’ collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians became refugees. 
 
She follows the transformation of Israeli veterans trying uncover their denial of the war that changed the region forever.  
 
Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement where that historical erasure gave birth to a new generation, blind and isolated from its surroundings. Attempting to shed a light on the country’s biggest taboo, she is met with outrage and violence.
 
Lia Tarachansky will present the film and stay for a Q&A after the screening.

Write-In for Ferguson (and Beyond) hosted by Writers in Baltimore Schools

Monday December 8, 7:00PM @ 2640

Baltimore students, please join Writers in Baltimore Schools for a Write-In for Ferguson. And while Ferguson prompted this event, we're going to be speaking and writing about police brutality much more broadly.

The Write-In will provide you with a space to discuss, write, and share your thoughts about the recent events in Ferguson, New York, and elsewhere. We'll begin by reading a few short pieces that were written in response to the recent verdict and discuss how their authors used language to convey their feelings. Then you'll have a chance to write and share your own work.

We plan to compile excerpts of student responses online (if students wish to share). Family members are welcome to accompany students.

Pizza will be served. Please RSVP so that we order enough! RSVP here or on EventBrite:
