Southwest Hills Residential League

View Documentary Film on Palestine by Council Crest Resident Art Wright: Friday, March 20
The film Land and Honor by Art Wright is largely a road trip through Israel/Palestine. Part observational, part poetic, the film includes visits with residents of Palestine from many walks of life in an attempt to clarify contemporary issues there. Included in the film is author Zaha Handoush who at the time of filming was in Palestine researching for her recent novel, Die Standing Like Trees.
The short film will be shown at Art’s home during a “Happy Hour” potluck on Friday evening, March 20, 6pm. Capacity is limited to 20 people, so please RSVP by March 18.
RSVPs are requested to or (503) 224-3840.
