NAAJA Co-Sponsored EVENTS
June 26, 2009, Bridgeview Community Center
NAAJA (National Arab American Journalists Association) is going to host a Movie Night Friday June 26 at 6 PM at the Bridgeview Community Center, 7900 S. Oketo Avenue. We’re going to show three episodes from the Palestinian-Israeli TV sitcom “Arab Labor” … it was written by a Palestinian “citizen” of Israel … after the showing (which is free and open to the public) I was hoping to have a panel discussion and we are featuring Arab journalists Mansour Tadros (al-Mustaqbal Newspaper), Amani Ghouleh (al-offok al-Arabi newspaper) and Rashad Darwish (RiseUp Radio) and wanted to know if you would be interested in sitting on the panel to talk about your impressions of the TV sitcom which is starting it’s second season in Israeli and Palestinian TV … the sitcom is controversial and is in Hebrew with English subtitles but it does a tremendous job of showing the racism that Arab “citizens” of Israel face every day and in a very funny way.
