“Take My Pictures For Me”

April 30, 1:00 PM

Free

“Take My Pictures For Me” is a short documentary by Prof. Amahl Bishara (Tufts University) and Mohammad al-Azza. Both are Palestinian, but Mohammad is a refugee born in the West Bank, while Amahl holds an Israeli passport and was born in the US. When Amahl went to a protest for refugee rights in Israel and saw there many of Mohammad’s American and European colleagues, she called him in frustration that he could not be there because of Israel’s movement restrictions. He replied with a generous provocation: “Why don’t you take pictures for me?” From there begins an exchange of photographs and a set of video explorations about expression, mobility, Palestinian collectivity, and the limits of what one friend can do for another.

Location: Room 153, Diamond Bldg.
