The Peace and Justice Group of Waldo County will screen “Budrus,” is a film about how residents in a Palestinian village, along with Israeli and international supporters, nonviolently oppose the building of a separation wall between the West Bank and Israel, Wednesday, April 18 at 6 p.m. in the Abbott Room of Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

In the 2009 film, success eludes the villagers until a 15-year-old girl in the village launches a women’s contingent that quickly moves to the front lines. Struggling side by side with her father to save their olive trees and community, she and the other women unleash an inspiring nonviolent movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories that is still gaining ground today.

“Budrus” opened the 2010 Camden International Film Festival and went on to many first-run theaters nationwide. It is the winner of 30 international film awards.

Admission is free; but donations are welcome.  For more information, call 338-4920.
