Documentary "Budrus" on The Passionate Eye on CBC TV: Sunday January 30, 2011


Circulate to your network to watch on Sunday night.

It has taken a very long time but it had to happen that one day on a national TV program, Canadians would get to finally see a clear statement and depiction of the situation facing Palestinians under Israel's total domination and occupation of their land, resources and society.

The documentary "Budrus" shows the determination and courage of the Palestinian non-violent resistance that has been kept invisible from Western public for decades. Thanks to the Internet and grassroots efforts, mainstream media can no longer ignore with impunity the reality in Israel/Palestine.

Be sure to see the documentary "Budrus" on The Passionate Eye on CBC TV 10 ET/PT. On its own it will not solve anything, but it is one more crack in the mirror keeping the majority in the West complacent and ignorant.

WRITE! CALL! CBC to tell them how important this showing is to peace.

Canadian TV Premiere on CBC's " The Passionate Eye"

Sunday January 30, 2011 - 10pm ET/PT

Just Vision is pleased to announce the Canadian television premiere of its new film, Budrus. Hailed in The New York Times as " this year's must-see documentary," and featured in major international news outlets, including Newsweek, The Economist, The Washington Post and on Charlie Rose, Budrus tells the story of a Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites members of all factions along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction. Success looks improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women's contingent that quickly moves to the front lines.

Recently, Matthew Hays of the Montreal Mirror picked Budrus as the top must-see film of 2010. Here is a trailer of the film as well as full press reviews.

Winner of multiple prizes at top international film festivals, including Tribeca, Berlin and San Francisco, Budrus is produced by Just Vision a nonprofit organization comprised of an Israeli, Palestinian, North and South American team of journalists, filmmakers and human rights advocates. Just Vision creates film and multimedia materials to increase the power, legitimacy and exposure of Palestinians and Israelis working towards nonviolent solutions to the conflict.

Budrus will also be in Vancouver at the World Community Film Festival Friday, February 11 at 7pm. For more info and tickets, please click here.
