Subject: Detaining Dreams Film at Islamic Center of Rochester

Saturday, April 16th, 2016 2:00­ 4:00 pm
Islamic Center of Rochester, 727 Westfall Road Rochester, NY 14620

Speakers: John and Joyce Cassel, volunteers with the World Council of Churches’ Accompaniment Program in Palestine (EAPPI).

Sponsors: Christians Witnessing for Palestine; Islamic Center of Rochester


In March of 2015, the Cassels, working with American Friends Service Committee and Defense for Children International Palestine, traveled to the West Bank to record the stories of four youth who experienced detention by Israeli Defense Forces. From these recordings, Amr Kawji and Nawal Musleh developed the film Detaining Dreams. This presentation will explore what occurs to these youth after “the knock on the door” by the Israeli Defense Forces.
