    • State Library Theatre, Perth


    Join us for a screening of the new documentary film Where Olive Trees Weep, proudly hosted by Friends of Palestine WA.

    From the Producers:

    "Where Olive Trees Weep offers a searing window into the struggles and resilience of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. It explores themes of loss, trauma, and the quest for justice.

    We follow, among others, Palestinian journalist and therapist Ashira Darwish, grassroots activist Ahed Tamimi, and Israeli journalist Amira Hass. We witness Dr. Gabor Maté offering trauma-healing work for a group of women who have been tortured in Israeli prisons.

    Ancient landscapes bear deep scars, having witnessed the brutal reality of ancestral land confiscation, expulsions, imprisonment, home demolitions, water deprivation, and denial of basic human rights. Yet, through the veil of oppression, we catch a glimpse of resilience—deep roots that have carried the Palestinian people through decades of darkness and shattered lives.

    This emotional journey bares the humanity of the oppressed while grappling with the question: what makes the oppressor so ruthlessly blind to its own cruelty?"

    All proceeds raised will be contributed to Palestine Australia Relief and Action (PARA) to assist the resettlement of Palestinian refugees in Australia.

    Time: 6.30pm (doors open 6pm), Thursday 27th June

    Venue: State Library Theatre, James Street, Perth
