The People and the Olive

The People and the Olive (2012) reflects the daily struggles and joys of Palestinian olive farmers. When a group of American marathoners sets out to run 129 miles in 5 days across the West Bank they discover that in replanting uprooted olive trees they are planting hope and building cultural bridges.  Olives groves are a principle source of sustenance to the Palestinian people, but they are denied access to nearly 30 percent of their orchards in the West Bank as they struggle Israeli military occupation. The runners faced many barriers during the endeavor — barriers that represented a microcosm of what their Palestinian friends face every day. Along the way, they forged deep bonds with their hosts while witnessing the harsh political reality and uplifting beauty of life in the West Bank.  

See “The People and the Olive” at the Open Book 671 Maltman (Brunswick area) Grass Valley Friday July 28 at 7:00 p.m.  Suggested donation $6.00 – $10.00.  Come enjoy the film, and stay for the facilitated discussion to follow.  Refreshments available for purchase.
