On Wednesday, March 1, Unusual Sources featured an interview with Diana Ralph of Independent Jewish Voices on the tour of Russian/Israeli filmmaker Lia Tarachansky.
Lia Tarachansky was born in the former USSR, and her family emigrated to Israel and subsequently became settlers on occupied land. After moving to Canada, Lia learned of the impact of the Israeli occupation and the displacement of Palestinians from her Palestinian acquaintances.
Her movie, "On the Side of the Road" looks at the impact of the 1948 occupation of Palestinian lands, the destruction of hundreds of villages and the expulsion of Palestinian residents. This film will be shown on Friday, March 3, 7:00pm at the Barton Stone United Church (located at the corner of Upper James and Stonechurch Road).
After the film, there will be a discussion with the director.
Ten days later, Lia Tarachansky will be back in Hamilton speaking at McMaster (room TBA) on The Rise of Fascism: Israel in the Age of Trump on Monday, March 13, at 6 pm at McMaster University during Israel Apartheid Week.
