Friday: Screening of 'Kalandia – A Checkpoint Story' at Maynard Avenue UMC

Kalandia is a militarized border checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem that has become a major point of contention between Palestine and Israel.

On Friday, January 24 at 7 p.m., Maynard Avenue United Methodist Church is offering a free screening of Kalandia – A Checkpoint Story, a documentary by Israeli filmmaker Neta Efrony.

Neta Efrony "is thoroughly Israeli, having lived in Israel her entire life and her background, training and culture is both a product and expression of the Israeli Jewish establishment," writes Sameh A. Habeeb in a review of the film.

"Yet it is out of this comfortable social setting that on retiring, she joined Machsom Watch (Checkpoint Watch), an Israeli Jewish women's organization which set as its goal the documentation of the treatment of Palestinians at Israeli army checkpoints, four hundred or more of which desecrate the West Bank landscape."

All are welcome to attend the screening. A discussion will follow the film, and refreshments will be provided.

Maynard Avenue United Methodist Church is located at 2350 Indianola Avenue, at the corner of Maynard and Indianola. The parking lot is south of the church, on the other side of Maynard Avenue. For more information, contact
