In 2005 a group of young Palestinian folk dancers from the northern refugee camp in Jabalia toured the north of England. They entertained and educated raptured audiences. This is their story, the product of 7 years’ work.
The film, “And Still They Dance” takes you from the unbridled joy of their performances to their accounts of life in a refugee camp under Israeli occupation.
Musheir El-Farra, Chair of Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign and director of “And Still They Dance”, will introduce the film and take questions after it’s screening.
Copies of the DVD will be available to buy on the night. All proceeds go towards supporting children’s projects in Gaza, Palestine. As Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s website explains, “We currently support three childrens’ projects, and a mobile library, each project based in one of the many refugee camps which are found in the Gaza Strip. The four projects try to provide the children and young people who live in the camps with a safe place to play, socialise and to learn.”
