The Middle East Children's Alliance presents
An Intimate Portrait of a Teenage Girl in Hebron (West Bank)--
Seventeen-year-old Leila Sarsour, an observant Muslim, is strong, intelligent and outspoken, like many of her female compatriots -- breaking the Western stereotype of the victimized Arab woman. Leila is a student at the Al-Qurtuba School, a Palestinian high school for girls in the West Bank city of Hebron. The school is surrounded by Israeli military installations and settlements populated by right-wing Jewish religious fundamentalists. "Welcome to Hebron" depicts everyday life for Palestinians attempting to lead normal lives in this volatile city surrounded by checkpoints and barbed wired. Directed by award-winning Swedish documentarian Terje Carlsson.
