Please join our brothers and sisters at Donkeysaddle Projects for the premiere of their new documentary film, There Is A Field, by Jen Marlowe. This film tells the story of Asel Asleh, a 17-year-old Palestinian peace activist, son, brother, and friend who was murdered by Israeli police. The story is performed by Black Lives Matter activists and artists, who reflect upon the parallels they see between Asel’s story and the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities in the United States.

The film is the culmination of over ten years of DSP’s work to amplify Asel’s story and elevate the connections between Black and Palestinian struggles against intersecting systems of oppression. Amidst this current political moment in the U.S. where there is renewed conversation about state violence and structural racism, we look forward to premiering the film as a solidarity offering to our communities.
The panel discussion after the screening will include:
Baraa Aslih (brother of Asel)
Gwen Carr (mother of Eric Garner)
Margaret Kwateng (activist who performs in the film)
Jen Marlowe (filmmaker)
Raya Naamneh (Asel’s cousin & activist)
Moderator: Nadia Ben-Youssef of the Center for Constitutional Rights
