When Arabs Came to Europe to Fight against Franco Lunch & Conversation with Filmmaker Amal Ramsis

Egyptian filmmaker Amal Ramsis, founder of the Cairo International Women’s Film Festival, has led numerous workshops around the world with women who have no experience in filmmaking. She is director of “Only Dreams” (2005), “Life” (2008), “Forbidden” (2011), “The Trace of the Butterfly” (2014), and most recently “You Come from Far Away,” an experimental documentary about a transnational Palestinian family and its ties to Europe’s anti-fascist struggle. The film will be screened on Sunday, Oct 20, at the Boston Palestine Film Festival: <a href="http://www.bostonpalestinefilmfest.org/bpff-event/you-come-from-far-away/">http://www.bostonpalestinefilmfest.org/bpff-event/you-come-from-far-away/</a>. The lunchtime discussion will include short clips.
