Film Screening: 1948: Creation & Catastrophe

October 17, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

The CCAS is excited to host co-directors Andy Trimlett and Dr. Ahlam Muhtaseb to present their newly released documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe. It will be hosted in the CCAS Boardroom, ICC 141.

This film tells the story of the establishment of Israel as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it, with the aim of enhancing global understanding of what happened in 1948. It is also the last chance to hear first-hand accounts of what took place in Haifa, Jaffa, Dayr Yasin, Acre, Jerusalem, Ramle and Lydda from the Israelis and Palestinians who personally fought in and fled from this land, including interviews with veterans, refugees, survivors and historians of the war collected in Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.
