Open Bethlehem at SJ Movie Night

On Friday April 7 join members of the Social Justice Committee at 7:00 PM at Westwood to watch an interesting new film. Discussion and popcorn to follow.

Open Bethlehem is a deeply personal film that has been 10 years in the making. At times funny, always passionate, this film paints the portrait of Bethlehem as it has never been seen before.” TIPPING POINT FILMS

About The Film
Film director Leila Sansour returns to Bethlehem to make a film about her home town, soon to be encircled by a wall. She left the city as a teenager thinking that Bethlehem was too small and provincial. She never wanted to return but this time she is making an exception. She intends her film to be a tribute to her late father, founder of Bethlehem University, and a man regarded as a hero by his town’s folk. As Bethlehem approaches ruin her decision to flee this sleepy town, taken much to her father’s regret, comes to haunt her.
