Lyd Film Screening - June 4

Backbone Campaign is sponsoring the one-night screening of Lyd. A discussion will follow.  

Tuesday, June 4


Vashon Theatre

Lyd is about a 5,000-year-old bustling Palestinian town that was conquered when the State of Israel was established in 1948.

Using never-before-seen archival footage of the Israeli soldiers who carried out the massacre and expulsion, the personified city explains that these events were so devastating that they fractured reality, and now there are two Lyds — one occupied and one free.

Made by a Palestinian from Lyd and a Jewish American, Lyd provides much-needed context for this moment, as it goes deep into the history of the Nakba from the perspective of Palestinians who survived. The film imagines an alternate reality where Palestine was never occupied and Palestinians of all religions (Muslims, Christians, and Jews) live in a liberated Palestine.
