Recontextualising a revolution.
Exploring a story that history overlooked, this hopeful documentary sheds 
light on the women from the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, whose 
grassroots organising was the unsung, beating heart of the first Intifada.  

Through animation, exclusive archive footage and intimate, in-depth 
interviews, Naila and the Uprising offers a rare opportunity to re-appraise 
the history of nonviolent resistance in Palestine from a feminist perspective.

Join us after the film as we explore the legacy of civil disobedience and 
community organising in Palestine, alongside the role of international 
solidarity movements.

We are part of the rapidly expanding worldwide Transition Towns movement. The Black Isle is a peninsula of about 100 sq miles ENE of Inverness in Scotland, UK.
