The prison population has exploded by 500% since the end of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements. America locks up more of its racial and ethnic minorities than any other country (including South Africa at the height of apartheid). Mass incarceration has emerged as America's new caste system.

Every year in this part of Ghana, hundreds of women endure communal and domestic violence as a result of traditional religious beliefs that demonize women. It’s also assumed that it is in women’s nature to harm others. These beliefs, combined with decades of poor health and educational standards, mean women inhabit a world where it is believed that nothing – not even illness or death – happens by chance. For over a century, women from all over the northern region have found refuge in a camp in the town of Gambaga, where they live under the protection of the chief, Gambarrana, the custodian of one of four places of sanctuary for women condemned of witchcraft.

Every year in this part of Ghana, hundreds of women endure communal and domestic violence as a result of traditional religious beliefs that demonize women. It’s also assumed that it is in women’s nature to harm others. These beliefs, combined with decades of poor health and educational standards, mean women inhabit a world where it is believed that nothing – not even illness or death – happens by chance. For over a century, women from all over the northern region have found refuge in a camp in the town of Gambaga, where they live under the protection of the chief, Gambarrana, the custodian of one of four places of sanctuary for women condemned of witchcraft.

If there is a war on women, these health workers are the shock troops in their defense. Their stories reveal strategies in place to improve maternal health and the crisis of maternal and newborn mortality, shedding light on when the strategies work, when they don't work and how the lack of transport, communication and education create weak links along the way. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eSister is a film directed, produced, shot and edited by women. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/77447195\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eMontreal World Film Festival 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eTake One Action Film Festival, Edinburgh 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eReykjavik Film Festival, 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eAfrican Diaspora Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eCambodia International Film Festival, 2012\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eOne World Human Rights Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eDoxa Film Festival, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eInternational Film Festival of Documentary Films on Human Rights : Bir Duino Kyrgyzstan, 2013\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eQuotes:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \"Childbirth in Third World nations comes under scrutiny in this sovereign, intermittently harrowing documentary from director Brenda Davis that follows three healthcare working in Ethiopia, Haiti, and Cambodia,where the rates of childbirth-related deaths are alarmingly high. In Haiti, Davis shadows the gregarious Madam Bwa—a traditional birth attendant—on her rounds through twisting, poverty-stricken streets. Despite the lack of formal medical training, Madam Bwa has helped to deliver 12,000 babies over the course of 32 years. In Cambodia, Pum Mach—a soft-spoken supervising midwife for 22 years—meets with several patients, including a 19-year-old with malaria who will need a cesarian section, but lacks the funds for surgery (Pum Mach comes up with a solution, but the delivery presents additional complications). Other medical dilemmas encountered involve an impacted placenta, a stillborn fetus, and a gangrenous uterus (doctors successfully remove the damaged portion of the organ). As Ethiopian OB\/GYN resident Goitom Berhane laments, most of these problems are preventable, but a lack of education and reliable transportation transforms minor issues into major ones. Fortunately, Ehtiopia also has health extension workers, such as Hirity Belay—a tracksuit-sporting high school graduate with a year of training—who travels to remote villages on foot to assist pregnant women with nutrition, hygiene, and other concerns.

In Haiti, Davis shadows the gregarious Madam Bwa—a traditional birth attendant—on her rounds through twisting, poverty-stricken streets. Despite the lack of formal medical training, Madam Bwa has helped to deliver 12,000 babies over the course of 32 years. In Cambodia, Pum Mach—a soft-spoken supervising midwife for 22 years—meets with several patients, including a 19-year-old with malaria who will need a cesarian section, but lacks the funds for surgery (Pum Mach comes up with a solution, but the delivery presents additional complications). Other medical dilemmas encountered involve an impacted placenta, a stillborn fetus, and a gangrenous uterus (doctors successfully remove the damaged portion of the organ). As Ethiopian OB\/GYN resident Goitom Berhane laments, most of these problems are preventable, but a lack of education and reliable transportation transforms minor issues into major ones. Fortunately, Ehtiopia also has health extension workers, such as Hirity Belay—a tracksuit-sporting high school graduate with a year of training—who travels to remote villages on foot to assist pregnant women with nutrition, hygiene, and other concerns. Without the kind of dedicated professionals who appear in Davis's documentary, the situation would be worse, but she makes it clear that the women of developing nations need far more care than they've been receiving.

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country.

Ndomo's life has been scarred by exploitation and mistreatment at the hands of those who would ride on the coattails of his talent. Trafficked to France as a teenager with promises to him and his family of riches beyond their imaginations, he was promptly abandoned in the streets of Paris. Despite this, Ndomo's story is one of inspiration as, fighting against all the odds, he manages to find a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. Kermit has risen from humble beginnings to a great height, signing a professional contract at 18 with Feyenoord in the Dutch league. His example is one of success brought about through the stable domestic system that exists in the World Cup host country. The story that unfolds around these two young men reveals the struggle that is life in much of Africa and demonstrates how football is a vital lifeline to which many will desperately cling.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/12133732?badge=0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/12133732\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eSoka Afrika - Trailer 1\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\/user3903453\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eMasnomis\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"http:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner of Best Film\u003c\/b\u003e (Golden Whistle), K\u0026amp;S Film Festival New York (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eWinner Best Picture\u003c\/b\u003e, Palermo International Sports Film Festival (2011)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\u003cb\u003eShortlisted Best Documentary\u003c\/b\u003e, One World Media (2012)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e(Nominated for Best Foreign Film, Best Editing, and Best Sound Mix at Palermo International Sports Film Festival)\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e  \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e\"Soka Afrika beautifully captures the harsh reality that can turn colourful dreams into dark nightmares\" \u003cb\u003e- \u003cb\u003eESPN \u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ffffff;\"\u003e“Football trafficking is a serious issue which not many people are aware of.

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

The movie is also an aesthetic delight. Its ability to weave different stories and concepts within a very personal framework suggests an artistic creativity I have rarely seen in my 19 years of teaching film. I would highly recommend screening the full 80 minute feature as its pacing, editing, dialogue, and music allow for a full understanding of the rich array of concepts presented by this wonderful director. Our campus was rewarded by our viewing of this film and Eliaichi made the experience transcendent with her commentary.         \u003cbr\u003e- Jim Price, Prof. of Art, History \u0026amp; Culture Lewis \u0026amp; Clark College \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e My first reaction is that it’s very compelling material, a really emblematic postcolonial, post-globalization, and postmodern story that is timely in each of these ways. I particularly liked the way in which A Lot Like You personalizes the emergent tension between cultural relativist or postcolonial sensibilities on the one hand and the notion of universal human rights on the other. This is one of the defining questions of our time: how do we embrace\/embody the values of the various declarations on human rights without re-engaging in modernist or colonial projects? It’s a fraught problem for a time of global cultural diffusion and awareness.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e         - Aron Hsiao, Managing Editor International Journal of Politics, Culture, and Society\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eA LOT LIKE YOU is \"...rooted in consciousness...

When her parents retire and move back to Tanzania, Kimaro begins a project that examines the intricate fabric of multiracial identity, and grapples with the complex ties that children have to the cultures of their parents. Though Kimaro grew up spending every other summer in Tanzania, it isn't until she is older and in an interracial relationship of her own that she finally grasps the importance of understanding her family's cultural heritage. She and her partner set out to make a documentary about her father's struggle to fit back in with the family and Chagga culture he left behind forty years earlier. But in the process, Kimaro struggles with her own relationship to Tanzania, and learns more about the heritage that she took for granted as a child. As she talks to more family members, she uncovers a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the U.S., inspiring Kimaro to dig deeper and reveal the hidden truths of her own story. And in so doing, she finds her own way to translate her father’s Chagga culture into her own personal legacy. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\u003cspan

I would highly recommend screening the full 80 minute feature as its pacing, editing, dialogue, and music allow for a full understanding of the rich array of concepts presented by this wonderful director.

Filmed in Chicago, it follows the lives of children living in dangerous communities who are making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives.

Touchingly narrated by Nickcole Collins, a teenage girl wise beyond her years, the film follows the Collins family over five years as they slowly pull themselves out of the haze of poverty, drug addiction, and violence that plagues their public housing project in Chicago. Stereotype-busting and open-minded, LEGACY paints the American Dream in honest colors to rousing effect. Improbably, the senseless killing of 14-year-old Terrell, a straight-A student and role model for the neighborhood, spurs the family to seek a better life against impossible odds. Nickcole’s mother, a high school dropout, moves in fits and starts to find a meaningful job. Aunt Wanda, mother of Terrell and longtime crack addict, enrolls herself in a drug treatment program. Nickcole catapults herself out of the inner-city trap to a college degree and a comfortable life. It’s impossible not to cheer for these incredible real-life heroes as they cry and laugh, stumble and get back up again on their way to something better. In LEGACY, award-winning filmmaker Tod Lending does that rarest of things—he gives voice to the voiceless.

In 2003, on the eve of the Iraq war, director Iara Lee embarked on a journey to better understand a world increasingly embroiled in conflict and, as she saw it, heading for self-destruction. After several years, traveling over five continents, Iara encountered growing numbers of people who committed their lives to promoting change. This is their story; from Iran, where graffiti and rap became tools in fighting government repression, to Burma, where monks acting in the tradition of Gandhi take on a dictatorship, moving on to Brazil, where musicians reach out to slum kids and transform guns into guitars, and ending in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, where photography, music, and film have given a voice to those rarely heard. Featuring Medellín poets for peace, Capoeira masters from Brazil, Niger Delta militants, Iranian graffiti artists, women’s movement leaders in Rwanda, Lebanon’s refugee filmmakers, U.S. political pranksters, indigenous Kayapó activists from the Xingu River, Israeli dissidents, hip-hop artists from Palestine, and many more, \u003cb\u003eCULTURES OF RESISTANCE\u003c\/b\u003e explores how art and creativity can be ammunition in the battle for peace and justice.\u003cbr\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36854406\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"webkitallowfullscreen\" mozallowfullscreen=\"mozallowfullscreen\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eETHIOPIA \/ ADDIS ABABA, Audience Award, Addis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Best Documentary, Tiburon International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eINDIA \/ JAIPUR, Green Rose Award, Jaipur International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBENIN \/ OUIDAH, Python Audience Prize, Jury Special Mentions, Ouidah International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUKRAINE \/ KIEV, Best Documentary on Human Rights, Steps International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NY, Best Documentary, 2nd Place, Buffalo International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NV, Golden Reel Award Winner, Nevada Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ GA, Best Documentary Feature, Atlanta Underground Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ UT, Best Documentary Feature, Red Rock Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Love \u0026amp; Encouragement Award, SURGE Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"quotes\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"In Palestine, we see so many films made about us—it get's exhausting.

Featuring Medellín poets for peace, Capoeira masters from Brazil, Niger Delta militants, Iranian graffiti artists, women’s movement leaders in Rwanda, Lebanon’s refugee filmmakers, U.S. political pranksters, indigenous Kayapó activists from the Xingu River, Israeli dissidents, hip-hop artists from Palestine, and many more, \u003cb\u003eCULTURES OF RESISTANCE\u003c\/b\u003e explores how art and creativity can be ammunition in the battle for peace and justice.\u003cbr\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv align=\"center\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Trailer Button\" --\u003e \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/36854406\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"webkitallowfullscreen\" mozallowfullscreen=\"mozallowfullscreen\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"Awards\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"awards\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eETHIOPIA \/ ADDIS ABABA, Audience Award, Addis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Best Documentary, Tiburon International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eINDIA \/ JAIPUR, Green Rose Award, Jaipur International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBENIN \/ OUIDAH, Python Audience Prize, Jury Special Mentions, Ouidah International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUKRAINE \/ KIEV, Best Documentary on Human Rights, Steps International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NY, Best Documentary, 2nd Place, Buffalo International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ NV, Golden Reel Award Winner, Nevada Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ GA, Best Documentary Feature, Atlanta Underground Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ UT, Best Documentary Feature, Red Rock Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eUSA \/ CA, Love \u0026amp; Encouragement Award, SURGE Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c!-- InstanceEndEditable --\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"bodytxt\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c!-- InstanceBeginEditable name=\"quotes\" --\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"quotes\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"In Palestine, we see so many films made about us—it get's exhausting.
