The Suffering Grasses - Film Screening
Thursday, December 6th 2012  7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Los Angeles, CA


Join Jodie Evans Co-Founder CODEPINK Women for Peace for a screening of the film The Suffering Grasses. Jodie will lead a discussion following the film.

The film screens at the Levantine Cultural Center and is paired with an exhibition by Syrian artist Fadia Afashe, "I Rise." .

About the film: A year and a half on, with thousands dead and counting, the ongoing conflict in Syria has become a microcosm for the complicated politics of the region, and an unsavory reflection of the world at large. Against the backdrop of the Arab Spring and the complicated politics of the region, this film by Iara Lee seeks to explore the Syrian conflict through the humanity of the civilians who have been killed, abused, and displaced to the squalor of refugee camps. In all such conflicts, large and small, it is civilians—women and children, families and whole communities—who suffer at the leisure of those in power.
