Boycott + panel discussion
Dir. Julia Bacha | Documentary | 2021 | 73 mins | English | 15

An attorney from Arizona, a news publisher in Arkansas and a speech therapist in Texas launch legal battles when they are forced to choose between their jobs and their political beliefs.

Boycott explores the extent of anti-boycott legislation in the US and shows the impact of state legislation on companies and individuals that choose to boycott Israel. Bacha’s compelling documentary is an inspiring story of standing up for one’s rights and fighting against threats to freedom of speech.

Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with guest speakers including Ken Loach, Selma Dabbagh, Zeyn Mohammed, Dave Spurgeon and Samir Eskandar, who will discuss the use of boycott campaigns in the fight for justice and the risks of anti-boycott legislation to activism in the UK.

This event is part of Bristol Palestine Film Festival 2022 – check our website for details of our full programme, which includes screenings of shorts, features and documentaries at a range of independent venues across the city, including The Cube, Watershed, St George’s, and the Palestine Museum.
