Colors of Resistance


Areeb Zuaiter, 35 min, documentary, in English with Arabic subtitles, Jordan/ Palestine/ USA, 2018 

Followed by a discussion with the director
Areeb Zuaiter 


“Colors of Resistance” is a personal journey that questions the concept of belonging to a place that is struggling to survive, inside and outside its own borders. A painter, a comedian, a poet, a hip hop artist and a sole singer have figured out ways to solidify their belonging to Palestine – the very place that is being deprived of its own right to exist. Regardless of their generation, gender or profession, these artists have used their various voices to challenge the annihilation of their identity. 

The film was awarded at Colorado International Activism Film Festival, Spotlight Documentary Film Awards and London Independent Film Awards. It was screened at several film festivals including: the New Haven Documentary Film Festival, Georgia Documentary Film Festival, Social Political Short Film Festival, Arab Film Festival @ Arab American National Museum, Docs Without Borders Film Festival, Long Story Shorts International Film Festival, 6th International Documentary Festival of Ierapetra Awards, West Side Mountains Doc Fest, Oregon Documentary Film Festival, 2nd Nagaon International Short and Documentary Film Festival, and Around Films International Film Festival. 

The Battle of Jerash

Carlos Cabrera, 25 min, short documentary, in Arabic with English subtitles, USA, 2018

Followed by a discussion with the Film’s Field Producer
Diala Al Azzeh  


Set on the grounds of a preserved hippodrome, a group of legionnaires, gladiators and charioteers try to hang on to Jordan's ancient past. But as tourism continues to decline in the Middle East, the performers are faced with the harsh reality that each show may be their last.

“The Battle of Jerash” is a short documentary short that takes you for an un unusual ride.

The film has participated at Firenze Short Film Festival, Roma Cinema Doc, MFAF International Archaeology Film Festival, Foça Film Days, Arab Film Festival
Dearborn, Michigan, Ethnografilm Paris and Dumbo Film Festival.
