The City of West Hollywood's Human Rights Speakers Series and Impact Media Partners present a screening and panel discussion of 1948: CREATION & CATASTROPHE. Through riveting and moving personal accounts of both Palestinians and Israelis, "1948: Creation & Catastrophe" reveals the shocking events of the most pivotal year in the most controversial conflict in the world. It tells the story of the establishment of the state of Israel through the eyes of the people who lived it. It is simply not possible to understand what is happening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today without an understanding of what happened in 1948. This documentary was the last chance for many of its Israeli and Palestinian interviewees to narrate their first-hand accounts of the creation of a state and the expulsion of a nation. SPECIAL GUEST PANELISTS on the film and understanding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict include Andy Trimlett, Co-Director and Ahlam Muhtaseb, Co-Director. Parking will be validated in the adjacent 5-story lot. Light refreshments will be provided prior to the screening.
