Arna’s Children is part of neat11 and takes place at New Art Exchange.
Yussef committed a suicide attack in 2001. Ashraf was killed by the Israeli army in 2002. Alla led a group of resistance fighters to his death in 2003. Juliano Mer Khamis documented them as promising child actors in a theatre group he founded with his mother Arna.
In this moving documentary, he returns to Jenin Refugee Camp in 2002, to see what happened to the children he knew and loved.
Following the film there will be an informal discussion about the work the Freedom Theatre does with, and for, the children and young people living in Jenin Refugee Camp, in the north of the occupied Palestinian Territories.
