Te Tau Ihu Palestine Solidarity group warmly welcomes the general public to this screening of Imprisoning a Generation here in Whakatū. Doors open at 7.15pm and screening will begin at 7.30pm.

Imprisoning a Generation is a documentary following the stories of four young Palestinians who have been detained and imprisoned under the Israeli military and political systems. Their perspectives, along with the voices of their families, form a lens into the entangled structures of oppression that expand well beyond the prison walls.
In addition to addressing the ways in which Palestinian children are targeted, the film goes on to address the Nakba and ongoing displacement of Palestinians, Israeli settler and soldier violence, the Apartheid wall, checkpoints and barriers and the Israeli system of Identification Cards.
