As part of its continuing efforts to spotlight the stories of African asylum-seekers in Israel, Weave News is pleased to present a public screening of the new documentary film Never Give Up, Never Keep Silent. Directed by Quester Hannah, the film chronicles the struggles of Sudanese refugees who are fighting for asylum in Israel after fleeing genocide in their home country. Following the screening, the director will be on hand to answer questions from the audience.

This event is free and open to the public.

Mr. Hannah's visit is funded by the Arts Collaborative at St. Lawrence University.
