On June 6th 1967, the Israeli army invaded and forcibly evacuated three Palestinian villages just outside Jersualem along the Green Line separating Israel from the West Bank. The villages — Emwas, Beit Nuba and Yalo — were bulldozed out of existence. Emwas: Restoring Memories tells the poignant story of filmmaker Dima Abu Ghoush's efforts to rebuild a scale model of the village she left as an infant decades later based on the memories of her mother and other former residents.

This special event screening, 50 years after the Six-Day War or Naksa, is presented by Humanserve International, an Edmonton-based NGO that supports Palestinian refugees in the Middle East.

Tickets are $10 for adults
$6 for children
