Wednesday, 25th May 2016, 6:30pm
Let Me Stand Alone borrows its name from the book assembling Rachel Corrie’s writings, that was published after her tragic death in Gaza. The film retells the story of a woman who has always seemed to live in parallel worlds, who was never at peace with the system, and who had foretells a very different ending to her life. It is only her heroic death that made her the protagonist of another story.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film director Rouba Atiyeh via Skype from Beirut.
