Nitin Sawhney and Roger Hill will showcase short films and photography produced in digital storytelling workshops conducted with Palestinian youth in Gaza City and the Jabaliya refugee camp in June-July 2010. They will also screen excerpts from two documentaries currently in production: Strawberries, Roosters and the Chocolate Seas, and Tayara Warakiya (Flying Paper). The latter is a participatory documentary being co-produced with youth in Gaza.
