Post-screening Q&A with Just Vision executive director Suhad Babaa, hosted by Kirsten Geekie.

Clandestine classrooms, sewing workshops disguised as political resurgent meetings, creches in political prisons; Naila and the Uprising is the story of the women who led a Palestinian uprising in the late 20th Century.

The documentary tells the story of the Palestinian resistance leader Naila Ayesh, which offers a window in the history of a fierce, relentless and discerning network of Palestinian women who led a civil resistance movement during the First Intifada in 1987. Candidly using domesticity as a tool for progress, these female freedom fighters hid resurgent bulletins in bread baskets, made and distributed food items to replace produce boycotts and started up businesses to sustain their initiative.
