The 63rd CWA will feature a screening of the acclaimed documentary Budrus. Ronit Avni, the film’s producer, will be on-hand for introduction of the screening, followed by Q&A.

Budrus is an award-winning feature documentary film about a Palestinian community organizer who unites local Fatah and Hamas members along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier. The film has been featured at numerous festivals across the globe, including Tribeca, Berlin, and the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Ronit Avni is a filmmaker, human rights advocate, and media strategist with an expertise in Israeli-Palestinian conflict resolution efforts. She is the founder and executive director of Just Vision, a nonprofit organization that researches, documents, and creates media about Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders in nonviolence and peace building.
