Comprising four chapters, this series aims to explore how the architecture, infrastructure, and spatial regime of Israel’s occupation constrains various dimensions of daily life for Palestinians. Each chapter contains a film and an accompanying text or conversation. All proceeds from the film screenings will go directly to aid groups in Gaza and those in Cairo working with refugees from Gaza, chosen in consultation with our contributors.

Films will each be available on our site for a limited time, announced on our social media and in our newsletter.

NOW STREAMING: Spaces of Exception, until midnight ET July 21st, with proceeds benefitting Ele Elna Elak.
