Join us for a screening of Palestinian filmmaker Mohanad Yaqubi’s film, “R21 AKA Restoring Solidarity,” followed by a panel discussion featuring UCLA Professors Saree Makdisi, Robin Kelley, and Shannon Speed. The film centers on the growing struggle for Palestinian self-determination between 1960 and 1980, which was supported by left-wing movements worldwide, including Japan. This is illustrated by a collection of 16mm films by militant filmmakers from various countries, dubbed and screened in Japan. Our discussion engages with the promise, challenges, and limits to solidarity commitments with Palestine, while touching on the seminal role solidarity has played in the shaping of and discourse around uplifting Palestinian struggle.
