Christianity was born in Palestine over 2,000 years ago yet many are unaware that Christians still live in the Holy Land, maintaining the ancient traditions at the heart of their faith in increasingly difficult times. For the past 70 years, Palestinian Christians have suffered displacement, expulsion, wars, occupation and oppression. Their voices are often drowned out in the turmoil of events. This is their story, in their voices, from the Nakba of 1948 until today.
Samya Jabbour is a Palestinian Christian woman born in Western Australia; she lived for several years in Hobart.
Ayman Qwaider is the co-founder of Gaza Children’s Cinema, a Palestinian initiative bringing cinema to the children of Gaza.
Film director, Yasmine Perni, is donating funds for the sale of DVDs of The Stones Cry Out to Gaza Children’s Cinema.
