A documentary that follows the efforts of "Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently," a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014. With deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to stand up against one of the greatest evils in the world today.
Disturbing violent content, and for some language.

Khaled is just one of 10,000 Palestinian refugees who live in Dieheshais, one of the cramped refugee camps in Bethlehem. 'It's the holiest place in the world, ' he says, 'but it's the worst now for human rights. I can't leave, I can't work, I can't talk even, I can't do anything I want.' Like Khaled, other refugees in Disheshais live lives of quiet desperation -- wanting simply to return to their homes, to work, to have the chance to lead a full life. In 1948, during the war that accompanied the founding of the Israeli state, thousands of Palestinian refugees fled to neighboring countries. Some twenty years later, in 1967, the Israelis fought what they regarded as a defensive war -- and occupied the West Bank of Jordan and the Gaza Strip. As a result there are now 1.3 million Palestinian refugees living under Israeli control, and denied many human rights guaranteed to all people under international laws.

The world is increasingly divided by walls, physically separating the human beings living on either side of them. Brilliant editing connects people living and working on both sides of the controversial barriers between Mexico and the U.S., Spain and Morocco, Israel and Palestine and South Africa and Zimbabwe. This cinematic investigation explores the building and maintenance of these WALLS as a growing global phenomenon.

"In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict. After several years, travelling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change. From Burma, where non-violent monks take on a dictatorship, to Brazil, where musicians transform guns into guitars, and myriad places in between, Cultures of Resistance celebrates the people standing up to exploitation and violence with artistic expression and creative activism"--Container.

American filmmaker James Longley follows a range of Palestinian Arabs living in the Gaza Strip and events following the election of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, including the first major armed incursion by the Israeli Army (IDF) forces in spring 2001. Filmed almost entirely in the vérite style without narration and with little explanation, this documentary focuses on ordinary Palestinians rather than politicians presenting a rare look inside the stark realities of Palestinian life and death under Israeli military occupation.
