A bit of Palestine is coming to Spokane

Documentaries at their best offer us looks into the reality of life. They tell stories that we may know from headlines, but how familiar are we with the specifics? With the actual people whose stories we are watching?

In conjunction with the the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane, the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane is making sure such an opportunity will occur locally. At 9 p.m. on Friday, PJALS will present a talk by Iyad Burnat, leader of the nonviolent Palestinian group Popular Resistance.

The event is free and open to the public.

Burnat, who is expected to talk about his experiences living in the West Bank village of Bil'in, appeared in his brother Emad Burnat's 2011 documentary, "5 Broken Cameras."

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane is located at 4340 W. Fort George Wright Drive. For more information, call 838-7870.
