“Beyond the Frontlines: Tales of Resistance and Resilience in Palestine” is a documentary following Dr. Samah Jabr, a psychiatrist in Ramallah in the West Bank of Palestine. From the website: “Beyond the Frontlines takes us on a journey both within our own minds and on the roads of Palestine, led by Palestinian psychiatrist and writer Dr. Samah Jabr. An heiress to anticolonial psychiatrist Dr. Frantz Fanon, she exposes the psychological strategies of the Israeli occupation and their consequences, and the ways in which Palestinians have learned to cope… for everyday colonization does not only involve occupying land, homes, the sky or water. It does not seek to impose its rule through weapons only; it molds the minds as well, beyond the frontlines.”
After the showing, Dr. Jabr and the filmmaker Alexandra Dols will be speaking with the audience about trauma and mental health under occupation!
