Palestinians represented at festival

I checked out the pro-Palestinian documentaries to be viewed. Pity none about training suicide bombers to slaugher civilians.

As a fitting gesture toward current circumstances, the Arab Film Festival, which continues today at Berkeley's Fine Arts Cinema, highlights films from and about the people of the Gaza Strip, West Bank, and those Palestinians living elsewhere.

"This year we felt it important to show films from Palestine," says Dina Saba, the festival's founder and director. "Making a film is difficult. Making a film under occupation is that much more difficult. It's great that they continue to do so. So we focused on that."
