Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Short Film: Ali's Wall

The third film honored in the Israeli Apartheid Film Contest is 'Ali's Wall.'  

Ali's wall, which won the Palestine Jury Prize, is the story of Ali 'Jidaar' Fathi Al-Jouri. Ali, a 16 year-old boy who lives in Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem, was sentenced to eight years in prison for placing a Palestinian flag on the separation barrier which borders Aida Camp. This is his story.
