England Times Palestine—Screening and Q&A, Caroline Rooney (Kent)

England Times Palestine is a film that engages with Palestinian exiles living in England.

The film marks the centenary of the 1917 UK Balfour Declaration, which granted permission for 'the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people', as led to the creation of the state of Israel and the consequent displacement of millions of Palestinians.

The film reflects on the historic responsibility of Britain for the above, while it further shows how individual Palestinians have creatively adapted to living in England, offering their skills, creativity and richness of culture, while they remain acutely conscious of their homeland and the effects of torn apart families and communities.
