Sewickley Series: The Heart of Jenin
Date: Thursday - January 17, 2013
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Rea Auditorium
The Heart of Jenin is the story of Ahmed Chatib, a Palestinian boy shot by Israelis whose father decided, within 12 hours, to donate his son’s organs to six Israeli children to save their lives. In the film, Ahmed's father Ismail travels throughout Israel, from its northern hills on the Lebanese border, past the contended Holy City of Jerusalem, up to the edge of the Negev Desert in the south of the land, to visit the children who received Ahmed's organs. The film is the story of a humanitarian peace gesture that seemed, for a short instant, to prevail over the insoluble conflict between Israel and Palestine.
