“Where Should the Birds Fly” tells the story of the spirit and future of Palestinians. It reveals the strength and hope, the humanity and humor, that flourish among the people of Gaza. Few films document so powerfully and personally the impact of modern warfare and sanctions on a civilian population.

These events are sponsored by: The United Methodist Great Plains Conference, Holy Land Task Force, Wesley KU Campus Ministries, and First United Methodist Church, Lawrence, Urban Abbey, Nebraskans For Peace
