The film is about life in Israeli-Occupied Syria know as the Golan Heights, it tells the story of the people of one of the remaining villages, Majdal Shams, and their struggle for survival. Their groves of apple trees root them to the land; they will not be moved.
The screening will be followed by a public Q&A with the film’s directors Keith Walsh and Jill Beardsworth.
