Now in its fourth year, Screening Rights is Birmingham's international festival of social justice film. The festival programme combines screenings of some of the most interesting and highly acclaimed new films with post screening discussions involving directors, producers, writers, activists and experts. Screening Rights aims to inspire and develop debate on the potential of film to affect personal, social and political change.

Embark on a journey across Palestine alongside Palestinian psychiatrist (and heiress to anticolonial psychiatrist Dr. Frantz Fanon), Dr. Samah Jabr and discover the resistance and resilience of a people affected by the invisible wounds of war and occupation.

Dr. Samah Jabr is a wise and thoughtful woman. She reflects on the subtle, devastating effect on Palestinian people of years of brutal occupation. Alexandra Dols’ film shares her insights with us, generous, humane and deeply disturbing. Please see this film.
