Everyone’s safety is our first concern. Given that covid cases are still prevalent in our community, we require proof of vaccination and ID. You must wear a mask except when seated and eating or drinking. The Little Theatre’s management have told us that all Little staff have been vaccinated.

Imprisoning a Generation features four young Palestinians who have been imprisoned in Israel. This sympathetic portrayal of how the Occupation has humiliated and permanently scarred Palestine’s youngest citizens offers a counter narrative to the prevailing one in the West: that the Israelis are the victims.

Four different stories through four different lenses provide a unique perspective on the ongoing violence that began with the displacement of their ancestors and continues to abuse the ancestors’ most innocent descendants.

Zelda Edmunds, the documentary’s creative director and producer, will be joining us virtually for a discussion following the screening.

Zelda Edmunds is an organizer and artist dedicated to using film and graphic design to support liberation movements. Having spent half of her life outside of the U.S., including two years in Palestine, she’s found delicate ways to explore the cultural and political notions of humanity through any lens she could get her hands on. She is especially interested in work related to Palestinian solidarity and prisoner support work. Imprisoning a Generation was her first time directing and producing a feature-length film.
